Timby Telecast 11/26/19

Coming at you with another all student created Timby Telecast!! Last month I shared that our fifth grade students have been working on a Timby Telecast that will be a different way to engage students in the morning beyond our traditional PA announcements. Thanks to our fifth grade teachers, Mrs. Kimmel and all of the students who worked on this telecast and many more to come! Finally, thanks to EFW for their funding of this awesome project!

Reminder! Update Demographic and Emergency Contact Information in Infinite Campus

When the school district switched over to Infinite Campus(IC) this summer all emergency contact information was lost. If you have not done so already, please go into your IC account parent portal ASAP and check your families demographic information (phone/address/email address change, etc) and enter in emergency contact information.

If you have not created an account for Infinite Campus yet and do not think you received an email, please check your spam folder. You should have received an activation code from the district.
