Did you know...

Did you know that Mrs. Strong loves to scrapebook? Did you know that Mrs. Rahn taught 2nd grade in Loganville, GA for 4 years? Did you know Mrs. Stankiewicz has been married for 23 years. More facts like these are displayed outside the media center. Come take a peek and see how much you knew about our staff.

Positive Behavior Intervention System


We will be starting a monthly PBIS winner. At the end of every month, we will ask teachers for the name of one student who really displayed that month's learner profile trait. This month our learner profile trait is reflective. The students' names will be announced on the last Friday of each month, just like Husky High Five Winners, and they will receive a prize.

Keller Creed

I will act in such a way that I will be proud of myself and others will be proud of me too.

I came to school to learn and I will learn.

I will have a good day.
