Here is a Family, Character Dare:
Get used to feeling a little awkward! Say I love you more than necessary, to all of you family and friends. Hug more often. One day you will be glad you did.
Tic Toc Trend called "Devious Licks."-Parents Please Read!
With this challenge, kids are encouraged to film themselves destroying, stealing, or moving school property. The challenge communicated that nothing is off-limits, including teachers' items, bathroom fixtures, furniture, and more.
We encourage families to share with students the real consequences involved in taking things or defacing school property. We want to also encourage families to discuss this from the character standpoint and doing the right thing.
We are blessed with incredible facilities for our school community and the best resources for teaching and learning. Thank you for discussing the dangers of social media, including challenges such as this, at home. We appreciate your support!

School appropriate backgrounds.
- To help things flow as quickly as possible at our car rider line, we ask that you let your child know which line you will be using so that they can be standing on that side of the pick up line. This will especially be important in bad weather when students will not be able to be standing outside.
- Drop off begins at 7:30 a.m. and pick up will begin at 3:20 p.m. Please remember to pull up as close as possible to the car in front of you. This allows us to load several students at one time.
- Tardy Bell rings at 7:50 when instruction begins for the day.
- We encourage you to still come eat lunch with your child. However, this year you will have to eat at one of the outside seating areas. Parents will not be able to enter the cafeteria due to safety guidelines.
