School Assembly

The Read -A- Thon culmination celebration will take place on Sept. 25. We moved this event so that classes could complete mCLASS testing and then have time to prepare worth-while skits and fun. Please encourage students to continue to bring in money up until Friday. We are only 1/3 the way to our goal.

Here are the rules:
Teacher dresses up in character attire. If you can't for some reason, have a creative substitution ready and in place for the judges.

  • K-2 will come to the Gym on Thursday for 15 minutes.
  • Each Class will be prepared with a skit/advertisement/chat/song/ etc to support the teachers character choice. The class will have up to a minute to perform for the other classes and the judges.
  • We will cheer (no booing) for each group
  • Judges will determine winning classes.
  • We will repeat the above for 3-5 immediately after K-2.

We will call classes to come. This will start around 1:15-130pm

ESL Classes

Welcome Dr. Viollydia Lartec

We are delighted to have Dr. Lartec with us as our ESL Teacher. She is currently finalizing her schedule with our students. She has submitted what we can begin with this week. Please keep in mind that we understand that there may need to be some adjustments. Please do not send her emails about the schedule. Let me know so that we can work it out.

Thanks for you cooperation!

This may or may not make since, but ultimately student log-ins will change

Accountability department reset student usernames and passwords for PowerSchool/SchoolNet as of 5 p.m., Friday, Sept 19, 2014.

Student usernames are now their student ID and passwords are the student's birthdate (MMDDYYY).


This means that the login and password that students use to log in to the computer will be the same thing they use to log in to Renaissance (Accelerated Reader, Accelerated Math, STAR Reading, and STAR Math). There may be a few that have issues try the old log-in and make us aware.


PLEASE make sure you notify your students about this change. ​

Please remember our staff:

We are praying for Claire Child's rapid recovery. She was hospitalized over the weekend.

We are thinking of Kelly Hill as she travels back to NC after being away for a week dealing with the loss of her father.
