Virtue of the Week

The virtue of the week this week is Thankfulness.

We focus on one virtue each week and emphasize that virtue throughout the week. Students will earn Sundog Tickets when they exhibit the week's virtue. Feel free to discuss this virtue with your child at home and find ways to acknowledge when s/he exhibits the virtue.

End of Day Protocols

The end of the school day has a lot going on. Please understand we may not be able to get your child a pass if you call to change transportation after 3:00pm.

Additionally, we will not call into classrooms to pull students for early pick-up between 3:30-3:45; too chaotic of a time. Again, thank you of your cooperation and understanding with us.
