Count Me In!

To continue encouraging our students to be in full attendance at school and to make the best of the educational time, we are changing the incentives a bit! With the help of PTA, we will be rewarding 2 classes at the end of the six weeks. PreK, Kinder, and 1st grade classes are competing with each other to have the LEAST absences, tardies, early releases, and discipline referrals in the 5th six weeks. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade classes are competing against each other. The winning classes will be rewarded with a pizza and drink party. Thank you for your efforts to have the kiddos make the most of their school day!
