ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT

Attendance This Week

Fourth Grade 95%

Fifth Grade 93%


Total Attendance 94%


Please remember that your child is missed when he/she aren't at school. One of the most important things your child can do to achieve academic success is also one of the most basic: going to school every day.



Research has shown that your child's attendance record may be the biggest factor influencing his/her academic success.


Your commitment to attendance sends a message to your child that education is a priority for your family, going to school is a critical part of educational success, and that it's important to take your responsibilities seriously - including going to school.

Counselor's Corner

The week of February 3-7, 2020 was National School Counseling Week. This was a time to share the function of the school counselor and to celebrate with stakeholders. I appreciate the opportunity to work with students, parents and staff!
