Please review these core values with your child often, as they are not just core values for school, but for life.


Average Attendance for Nov. 14 - Nov. 22: 92%

Our attendance goal is 95% this year. We need to stick together Cyclones and make sure we reach our goal. It all starts with you and showing up each and every day to school.

Attendance = Academic Success = Lifelong Success
