Hello Anderson Families,

Full Disclosure... I know how hard it is to get kids up, fed, at least presentably clean, gather all needed school materials and make it to school on time. No judgment here. However, please know that we need to close our front doors at 8:00 AM and students arriving after 8:00 AM need to be signed into school by an adult. If you find that arriving late is becoming a pattern for your family, please work to get up a few minutes earlier, establish a routine, set out backpacks, clothes, and lunches the night before. Our learning day starts at 8:00 and we don't want any student to miss out.


Mr. Jarot

End of the Trimester! Report Cards coming soon.

February 25th was the end of Trimester 2 for elementary schools. Report cards will be available to parents in Home Access Center on March 9, 2022. It is very important that every family reviews their child's report card. If you need support logging into the Home Access Center (HAC) please call the school office. We are happy to help. You can always click, FORGOT PASSWORD if you need.

Panorama Universal Screening Tool

In the fall of this school year students in grades 3-12 completed a universal screening tool to assess their social and emotional learning skills. In the spring students in grades 3-12 will complete a follow-up survey. The use of universal screening allows us to refine and strengthen our efforts to help all students achieve success by taking positive and preventative measures as early as possible. This also provides us with the opportunity to assist students who may need additional support with social and emotional learning.

Want to get involved in the PTO?

We are still looking someone to fill our treasurer board seat for the 2022-2023 school year. If you are looking for a way to get involved but can't help during the school day this is the opportunity for you! Many of the job requirements can be done from home. Our current treasurer will be available for you to shadow for the entire school year so you would be learning this role from an expert. If you are interested or have questions contact Brook at:
