Principal Corner

We had a great Read Across America Week! Thank you for encouraging your child to participate in the dress up days. We had so much fun. If you were not able to watch our Book Character Parade, you can see it here- LINK.

Update Student Information

It is time to update student information and begin planning for the next school year. Make appropriate changes to your child's information sheet. Pay close attention to the mailing and physical address, parent and guardian information, and emergency contact information. Be sure to include the names of anyone that is allowed to come to have lunch with your child at school. You will then sign the bottom of the form and return it to your child’s teacher. Additionally, we need proof of residence for each student. This can be in the form of a gas or electric bill.

With Springdale Schools opening a new school this year, we are still waiting on final zones to be announced. The information form will enroll your child at their zoned school for 2021-2022 school year. All 5th grade student information will be updated and sent to the appropriate middle school.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this form and returning your proof of residence. We need these forms returned to the school by Friday, March 5th so we can begin planning for next year. This summer, you will receive a letter in the mail to give you another opportunity to update any last-minute changes to your child’s information.

Congratulations to the March Readers of the Month!

Notes from the Counselor- MOTIVATION

Character Word for March- Motivation

For the month of March we are focusing on the word motivation. Motivation is the desire or drive to do something or work towards finishing a goal.

Practice it!

Help your child set a goal. It can be a goal for school, for home or for an outside activity. The goal should be easily measured- your child should clearly know when he/she meets that goal. Talk to your child about the hard work that will be required to meet the goal. Help keep your child accountable to meeting his/her goal.

Talk About it!

  • What do you think motivation means and why is it important?

  • Tell me about something that you have worked really hard at. How did it go?

  • Tell me about a time when you didn’t work very hard at something. How did it go?

  • What can make it hard to be motivated? What can you do about it?

  • Tell me about someone you know who is a hard worker
