Principals' Corner

Parents, the end of the first marking period is Friday, September 21st. Please check the Home Access Center (HAC) with your child(ren) to see what grades have been earned for each class. If the overall grade is not acceptable, please make a plan of action with your child to determine how they will address their grades. They may need to see a teacher for tutorials, retake a test, or simply turn in missing work. We want all of our students to be successful and are excited about all of the wonderful things the students have learned thus far.

Safety and Security from Mrs. Reed

1. Students are required to wear their badges on campus each day as an added safety measure.

2. Parents, please drive slowly and courteously when near or on the campus. We want to keep our students and staff safe! See the traffic flow map here.

UIL Eligibility

Parents, students who do not score 70 and above in each class on their report card are ineligible to participate in UIL activities. Students also may not attend after-school events or games on campus if they have made a failing grade. Please know your grades prior to coming to events because ineligible students who appear will not be admitted.

Dress Code

Parents, please go over the dress code with your children and please make sure they are in compliance each day. When in doubt, it is probably best not to wear it. Please see the Dress Code here.

PTA Membership

Congratulations & thanks to everyone who helped us earn our first award milestone, The Head Start Award. The next award deadline is for the Early Bird Award (9/28). We need 43 more members... if the new 43 members are Students, Faculty, Community, Grandparents & MARS members that will bring us closer to those individual goals as well - so it’s a win win.

Thank you for all of your support!
