A Message from the Principal

Hello Caldwell Families,

We have a lot of exciting things happening this month! Be sure to read below for information on Fannie Mae Day, Our Attendance Kona Ice Parties, and our 3rd Nine-Weeks POPS Rally.

We are 8 short weeks away from the end of the year, but still have a lot of learning to do. Please make sure your student is here everyday so they are prepared for the next grade level.

Tardies, Leaving Early, and Dismissal Changes

  • We are having a substantial issue with tardies every morning. We have a very large group of students who are entering the building each day after 7:35am. Please remember that students should be in their classroom by the time the bell rings at 7:35am. Instruction begins right away and students need to be present from the beginning.
  • We are also having some problems with many students being picked up before 2:50pm each day. Unless your child has an appointment, we want them in class for the entire instructional day. It can be disruptive to your student and the rest of the class for someone to leave early.
  • If you need to change your student's dismissal plan, please either send a note with your student or call the front office. If you are calling to make a change, please make sure you call before 2:00pm.


  • Yearbooks are on SALE until April 30th! Click HERE for order information.
  • Students will not have school on Friday, April 15th or Monday, April 18th.
