Who's My Teacher
There is so much excitement in the air here! Teachers are eager to meet their new students. We have been busy getting everything ready for an outstanding year!
At 5:00pm on Friday, August 11th, families will receive a welcome email from their child's teacher introducing herself. If you do not receive the email by 6:00pm, please feel free to email email@example.com. We are excited for the start of the school year and can't wait to get started!

* We know how important recess is for our students. We are moving recess to the mornings until it cools down. Hopefully, fall will come soon!
Annual Registration - If you have not completed your annual registration, please be sure to get this information updated this week. This needs to be done so that your child will receive a postcard from his/her homeroom teacher.
You can update the documents and contact information here .
Car Riders - Please have your car tags displayed on your windshield at Dismissal. This helps us move the line along. We will have car tags for everyone at Meet the Teacher.
Arrival and Dismissal - Our arrival and dismissal procedures have not changed from last year. If you are driving your child to school in the morning, the drop off location is at Viking Hall. To access Viking Hall from 1431, you will turn on Bar K Ranch Road. Turn left in front of the lower baseball field. Please only release students in front of Viking Hall.Do not let your child out in the circle.
We will not have staff on duty until 7:15. Please do not drop your child off before 7:15. Buses will drop students off in the front of the building.
In the event that you are late, after 7:40am, please drop your child off at the front of the building. You do not need to sign them in, we will have the students sign in if they are late. We will not have anyone supervising in the back of the building after 7:40am so it is important that you take them to the front of the building.
Welcome Back Staff
On Monday, we welcomed back our entire staff. It has been a week full of laughter, connecting, learning and building relationships. We are excited for this year's "Learning Journey." We are all about connecting with our students, families, and one another. We are confident that it is going to be a wonderful year full of learning and making memories for our students.

This year, we are taking off on a journey of learning!
Our theme this year is Taking Flight on a Journey Full of Learning. Through this theme, students can learn more about their own leadership qualities, goal setting, resilience, hard work, and determination. In addition, they can discover their own star power and unique talents.
Breakfast and Lunch . Breakfast will be $2.00 and Lunch is $3.30. Here is the link to add funds to your child's account.
Free and Reduced Meal Applications - Families are encouraged to fill out the Free and Reduced-Price Meals applications. You can access the links here (English or Spanish). You may not qualify for it, but you could be eligible for other assistance.
Visitors and Volunteers - We will be welcoming lunchtime visitors on campus starting September 11th. This allows us time to teach routines and procedures.

Water Bottles for Students
We want to encourage our students to bring a water bottle everyday. We want to keep everyone hydrated!
If you have any extra refillable water bottles or case of water, please send them our way! We will be collecting them for students that do not have a water bottle or forget theirs. It is hot, and we want to keep our students hydrated throughout the day.
Thank you for all your support!
