Happy Monday everyone! We hope everyone had a great first week back to school last week. It was so great to see all of our students back and there was a great, positive energy buzzing around campus all week as students were excited to be back. This week we have a number of opportunities for you to join in with our community so be sure to check below. Also, just a reminder, we have a staff professional development on Thursday and students will have have a Minimum Day. Dismissal is at 12:16 on Thursday, Jan 16th. We hope you all have a great week!


Cell Phones: Parents, please remind students about our school cell phone policy that phones are ONLY allowed before and after school, not during. Phones need to be out of sight and silent during the school day. As always, if you need to get a hold of your student please call the office and do not text them. We can get messages to your students quickly if needed. If students need to call home they should come to the office to do so.
