Inspiring a love of learning in a safe and collaborative environment!

December 3, 2022

Dear Families,


We have officially entered the month of December! Thanks to everyone who came out for our "Celebrate Winter" PTA Family Engagement Night! We had fun making crafts and watching the puppet show! Thanks to all the families who volunteered their time to make this event a success.


This next week, we have our K fieldtrip and our K musical. Please check Friday folders for the times that students need to be at school on Tuesday (December 6th).


We have started our Winter Benchmark Assessments. Students will be assessed over academic and behavior/ social emotional learning progress. If you have a second or third grade student please fill out our opt-in or opt- out form: https://forms.gle/eUUA2zXBHidZSo6q9


We are looking forward to a wonderful week!


Reminders:


Lost and Found items are available in our front office. Please stop by if you are missing any items!


Standards-Based Grading information can be found below. We have transitioned from letter grades to standards-based grading as a K-5 system.


Safety: We have implemented increased security measures. Visitors will not be allowed to enter the building during arrival or dismissal. All visitors will need to call ahead or use the door bell at the entrance.


Attendance- Please call us at 913-727-1128 in the event your student will not be at school, will be in to school late, or will need to leave early.


Traffic: Please remain in your vehicles during car-rider pick up. Thank you for following our traffic protocol.


Going Home: Please remember to call in any ride changes before 3 PM. The number to call is 913-727-1128.
