A Note From the Principal
First, just a reminder that this year all students will decorate a large white bag to collect their valentines in at school during our Valentine's Day parties on February 14th. The bags will be designed during art class for grades K-4 and in the regular classroom for Pre-K.
We have finished our benchmark testing for winter, and we are seeing some amazing growth in both literacy and math! I am so proud of how hard both the students and teachers have worked so far this year. Thank you families as well for all of your support at home! This growth would not be possible without you.

A Reminder about Pre-arranged and Extended Absences
PREARRANGED EXTENDED ABSENCES
Parents must notify the school and classroom teacher one week prior to taking a child out of school for a trip. This includes vacations, extended weekend trips, and family visits.
No advance work will be assigned prior to prearranged absences. The nature of our curriculum necessitates teacher assistance in making up work following a child’s return to school. The teacher, student, and parent will work together to ensure the student has met academic expectations within the classroom. Homework will be given to the student upon return. Students will have the number of days missed plus one additional day to complete the work.
