Principal's Post

Dear Guardians and Parents,

Please save the date March 23rd for the Shoot for Success Family Night. Food trucks arrive at 5:00 and student recognitions begin at 6:00. We are looking forward to connecting with our families. NAMI, Keystone, and a Literacy showcase will also be part of the evening! More details to come.

Students will be taking quarter 3 Benchmarks so teachers are able to make informed decisions about their instruction. These assessments are not counted in your child's average; however, it is important for us to have an accurate measure of what they know. Please encourage giving their best!

Tuesday will start the last quarter of the 22-23 school year. Habit #3 is Putting First Things First... We want all students to make a plan and set a goal to finish the year strong. Quarter 4 will be spent teaching the remainder of the standards, reviewing material, and test prep for May. This will be a busy 45 days!

Tutoring will continue this Wednesday and Thursday. Please click on the Google Form if your child will be attending. IF you have not completed the form and need transportation, it will not be available this coming week. We must give transportation time to map out routes since we have students who may not live near each other. For those parents that completed the form last week, transportation will be provided.


We will not be doing the rotating schedule anymore this year, so students should begin their day in Core 1.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Warm Regards,

Heather Andrus

Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month and we are proud to join the national effort in celebrating and highlighting the many achievements of women.

Our schools are celebrating Women's History Month with activities and lessons that will lift up significant women in the history of our community, state, and nation. Additionally, the achievements of women are a part of our year-long curriculum.

Throughout this month we will share stories and highlights celebrating Women's History Month from some of our schools. We invite you to follow along with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
