Principal's Message

Metzler Families,

November is one of my favorite months of the year. The temperature is finally cooler in the morning and beautiful during the day. We are starting to see fall colors, and holidays which are focused on family, gratitude, and caring are upon us. November is traditionally a month to pause and reflect on all the things for which we are grateful.

We have much to be grateful for here at Metzler Elementary. We have a wonderful, caring staff from our custodians, our paraprofessionals, our office staff, to all our teachers. I am grateful every day for the opportunity to work with all of them and I know your children are in good hands with them. We have supportive parents and community, with a giving and engaged PTO, to which we all say thank you.

I would like to take this opportunity to share my gratitude to you all for taking the time to read with your children, talk to them about their learning/goals, and for partnering with their teachers to ensure their academic success, and the countless other things you do as a parent or guardian to encourage and support the education of your child.

And finally, we have incredible students, who challenge themselves every day to learn and be engaged. They are why we are here every day!

I challenge you to take time throughout this month to reflect on the things you are grateful for and to encourage your children to do the same. A fun idea would be to start a gratitude jar, each day, ask everyone in your home (yourself include) to write down one thing they’re grateful for and put it in the jar. At a specified time, sit down with the family and read the cards together.


Danis Boone, Principal

school entry

To enter the building, please have your ID ready, as you will be asked to show it and state the nature of your visit. Once entry is granted, you will be able to proceed to the front office. I know it is awkward, but please do not allow other visitors to follow you into the building, as we will need to validate each entry request. Thank you for your support with keeping our students and staff safe!


If your child is absent and you have a doctor's note you do not need to enter the absence in Skyward. You can either send the doctor's note with your child or email it to

If your child is absent, but you do not have a doctor's note you will need to enter the absence through Skyward. We can not accept paper parent notes. Please see the link for instructions on how to do this. Report an Absence through Skyward
