Principal's Message

Welcome to 2017! We are so glad to be back and ready to continue to striving for success this school year.


We have a lot coming up this school year. We have a Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser coming up. This is a fundraiser to support the American Heart Association. Your child will be bringing home information after our assembly today.


Our next PTO meeting is on January 17th at 6:30 pm, please join us. We have many events coming up this Winter and Spring and your input and support is needed.


WEATHER CHANGES

Please make sure that your child is prepared with a hat, gloves, coat and proper shoes for recess. We still go out for recess when the weather is at least 40 degrees. In case of a 2 hour delay, school will open at 10:50 am with an 11:00 start time. If there is snow and there is a Code Green or Red- Students do not report to school. It is very important that your child’s emergency card is up to date in case of an early release due to weather.


Speak Up 2016 Survey

The Speak Up Project for Digital Learning, facilitated by Project Tomorrow®, gives education stakeholders the opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues, particularly concerning digital learning and the use of technology to support future ready schools. By participating today, you are ensuring your voice is heard not only by your school and district but at the state and national level as findings are summarized and shared with national and state policy makers every year. Speak Up is both a national research project and a free service to all schools and districts.
