September Student of the Month
Slade Jeckstadt Receives Recognition
Cowboy Starts with the Letter "C"
Brought to you by the letter "C"
Our Rocket "GirlTalk" ladies are learning the power of positive thinking! Mrs. Bryant challenged the group members to replace negative beliefs and thoughts with positive affirmations. Replacing negative thoughts with positive ones can help support your efforts to achieve your goals.
The group put their positive statements out there to encourage others to recognize the power of positive thinking.
It's a Plum Job!
These daily snack deliveries are made possible through a grant award from the United States Department of Agriculture. Fresh plums are just one example of the healthy snacks that are delivered each day.
Dear Parents, Your Help is Needed!
We would like to inform you of an important change to our transportation policy. Please be aware that if you intend to change the transportation method (parent pick up or bus) for your child on any given day, you must notify the school by 3:00 PM. This new procedure is designed for your child’s safety. Any time a parent requests to change transportation methods it must be communicated to multiple staff members. If the request is last minute, it can be difficult to manage during the end-of-day procedures and can increase the probability of error.
Thank you for your help in keeping our Rockets safe!
