August 28th Update
One of the quotes I keep hearing recently from Conscious Discipline is "My state, often dictates your state." How one person feels towards something, and how they display those feeling towards others, will often affect how the other's feel or act. Similar to turning lemons into lemonade. Often times, how we approach a difficult time or situation will determine how others feel about this situation. We understand this method of school isn't ideal, wearing a mask is uncomfortable, and limiting access to the building is pain. In light of those difficulties, we are also thankful to have the opportunity to have students here at school, even if it is only for a couple of days each week.
There are numerous times this year has felt like we are building an airplane while in the air. With that being said, our teachers and staff are working tirelessly to answer your questions, provide information or insight to the unknown, and take care of the students for both in-person and remote instruction.
Please realize that we do appreciate and have recognized all the support, patience, and understanding we have witnessed from our parents. From the PTO helping to meet our needs, to the parents following our school guidelines, and all the kind gestures, patience, and smiles. Thank you!
If the face of all our adversity, the students have been amazing in their approach and resiliency to all the change. I find myself realizing often, their state helps dictate my state. They have truly been awesome.
Together, we are all better and stronger. Together ,we will overcome and adjust to what will come our way. Together, we will find the successful path.
Moving forward, please let your child's teacher or the school know if there is anyway we can be of assistance to any of your needs, now or in the future.

Student Technology Protection Plan
Our one method of generating funds to support the numerous PTO funded programs is through the Boosterthon Fundraiser. This year's fundraiser is set to kick off next week. The daily team huddles will be replaced by virtual presentations. The Fun Run will be placed with a Dance Fit Party. Although the program will look differently this year, we know the outcome will be just as important, if not more, than in previous years.
We understand everyone's outlook is much different now, but your support and ability to generate additional exposure through sharing links to our program will go a long way in providing us the ability to navigate through this challenging time.
Below is the schedule of events:
August 31st - Boosterthon Kick Off Assembly - A link will be shared out to "B" Students.
September 1 - 10th - Daily character videos and information to correlate with the theme Sport City Now. Links will be sent to students on their remote learning days.
September 11 - Dance Fit Party - "B" Students
September 14th - Dance Fit Party - "A" Students
Avocado Aubrey, our school leader from Boosterthon again this year, will be on-hand each day to answer any questions, check in with classes, deliver prizes, etc.
We are raising funds to pay for the bottle filling stations, playground upgrades and creation of outdoor classrooms ( especially now, when we would like students to get more fresh air), PPE, etc.
Thank you for all your support with this important school fundraiser.
