If you ordered your yearbook before the deadline of May 23, your yearbook was delivered to your child’s classroom on Thursday, June 10, and will be distributed to students at the teacher’s discretion.
Yearbooks ordered after the deadline may arrive at school, or home, depending on when they were ordered.
If you have questions, please contact Tamara Woodchek at firstname.lastname@example.org
5th Grade Clap Out Details:
They will line up and walk the halls while the remaining grades cheer them on from their classrooms as they pass by. 5th grade siblings will be allowed to bring posters and stand in the halls as their sibling passes their class and all homeroom teachers will be at their doors to watch their former students with pride!
The 5th graders will be exiting the building through 3 separate doors and will be marked with balloons. Please see the attached map to find where you will wait for your child to exit.
Parents are welcome and encouraged to bring posters, noise makers, etc! Let's show these 5th graders some BIG LOVE!
Students will leave for the day upon exiting the school and won't be returning to their classrooms, so please don't send lunchboxes or backpacks on the last day of school.

Keep up that Enrollment!
Important Updates on Class Lists and Enrollment
We are working hard to finalize class lists for the 2021-2022 school year, and we hope to share this information with you on the last week of June. If you are enrolled for the upcoming school year, we will send you a postcard with your stallion's new teacher for next school year! If you do not receive a postcard, this information will be available to you by August 10th on the Parent Portal platform.
Each year, the process of placing our students in their new homeroom classes is very important to us! While I know that some parents may be asking for class changes, unfortunately we cannot make any adjustments for homerooms. We must consider the parent and teacher input provided in the spring to meet each child’s unique needs, as well as the even distribution of students in each class. As the school year begins, we ask that you use the following campus procedure to address any concerns.
1. First, reach out to the teacher directly with any concerns or needs regarding your child's experiences. We are all learning together and there will be an adjustment period.
2. If after reaching out to your teacher you still have concerns, please reach out directly to their administrator, (3-5 Ms. Bentley) (K-2 TBD).
Thank you for your understanding of our school policy and supporting us as we dive into the new school year!
STUDENTS MUST SUBMIT IMMUNIZATIONS WHEN ENROLLING (or enrollment will be on hold)!!!
Parents need to upload immunization records to complete the enrollment. All immunizations should be completed by the first date of attendance or be compliant within 30 days upon enrollment. State law and district policy requires that students be fully vaccinated against certain specified diseases (See attachment) They may also submit updated vaccination records to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 972-749-7301 attn School Nurse.
