Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 21-22 school year. We are so excited to see all our students and families. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partner, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our best to carry out our responsibilities. Here are a few things you can do to support your child as they get back into the routine of school. Consistent bedtimes and wake up times go along way for assuring that your child is rested and prepared for their week at school. Coming to school every day and arriving on time significantly increases your child’s success in academic achievement. Attendance is essential. When children miss school they fall behind and it is difficult for the student to catch up on the concepts they missed. Set aside time for homework and discussing your child’s day. Thank you for your help. We look forward to a great year with you and your child.

Counselor's Corner

Dear Parents:

This year we will focus on building strong character in our students. As a school we will be recognizing children who are kind, truthful, show respect towards others, are responsible, use good manners and much more! This month our character trait focuses on “Respect”. Please encourage your child to practice these good character traits at home by praising good character choices that your child makes.

Please send me a note with any success you notice at home from this character program so I can reinforce and praise your child’s progress too! Your help is valuable to these life lessons!

Thanks for your participation and support!
