Principal's Message

It's hard to believe that we have entered the month November. This school year is moving along by leaps and bounds. We are extremely proud of what our students have accomplished so far and look forward to their continued success.

Cooler weather is on the way. Please make sure that your child/children are dressed appropriately for the weather. Jackets, hats, gloves, scarves, etc. are needed when the temperature drops really low. Make sure your child's/children's names are inside of their personal items so they don't get lost. Contact the Family Engagement Center if you need support with any of these items.

On November 11, we honor the sacrifices our veterans and their family members have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy. We have a number of staff members and parents who have served or have family members who have served/are serving in the armed forces. Thank you to each veteran for their bravery, hard work, and dedication to our country.

Thank you for your continued support!

Generals Salute,

Mrs. Clowers

From the Clinic

The fall and winter seasons bring cooler weather and colds and coughs are somewhat expected. Please be advised that cough drops are considered medication and "Children are not to have medications in their possession during the school day or on the bus". All medications, both prescriptions and over-the-counter must be in their original container and must be accompanied by an Administration of Medication Request form and brought to the school clinic by an adult. Thank you for helping us keep your student safe.

Thank you for all the clinic donations thus far. It is greatly appreciated. We are always in need of supplies. If you would like to donate to the clinic, you can go to My Payment Plus and click Partee ES Clinic Supply Contribution.
