Labor Day Holiday - 9/5

No School Monday, September 5. Enjoy the long weekend!

It's School Picture Time!

Mark your calendar now! All students K-8 will be taking pictures Wednesday, September 7. Forms from Lifetouch have been sent home with your child. You may also go to and enter the School Code: EVTBD7CWT. Ordering your pictures has never been so easy with their relationship with Shutterfly!

Morning Arrival

  • School starts promptly at 8:15 am.
  • Please make sure to have your child at school before 8:15. You can drop off your child as early as 7:45.
  • Late arrivals have to sign in at the administration office and be sent to class with a pass.
  • Tardies will begin to count and accumulate Tuesday, September 6.
  • If your child is out sick, please send them back to school with a doctor's note for an excused absence.

School Dismissal

  • School finishes at 3:00 pm.
  • If there is any change in your child’s transportation schedule, please submit it in written form, so we can adjust accordingly.
  • Aftercare begins as soon as carline is over. The first 20 minutes is dedicated homework time.
  • Aftercare is provided until 4:00 p.m.

Homework and Planners

Our teachers are intentional about assignments assigned for homework. Homework assigned is not busy work. Students need to practice math skills and read every day. Does your child have a special place to do their homework? Be sure it is well lighted and quiet. Monitor your child and provide support as needed. Homework should be independent and reinforce the learning from that day's lessons. Students in grades 2-8 have been issued a planner to help them learn organizational and planning skills.

Afterschool ELA/Math Lab

For students 3-8th grade, Mrs. Ashraf and Mrs. Lubey rotate providing ELA/Math assistance Monday-Friday from 3:00-3:30.

Beginning of the Year Assessments

The beginning of the school year is a time when we take the time to assess where our students are academically, behaviorally, and emotionally. K-8 students have taken iReady diagnostics for ELA and Math. Did you get your child's BOY report? Please review it carefully with your child so that you can help us better support your child. We use DIBELS to assess literacy skills in K-3 and DRDP-K as our Kindergarten Readiness Tool.

Open House Was A Success!

We are very grateful for all of the support that our families have shown us the last few months. We were able to start school with our campus ready and almost everyone hired! Open House was a successful night! We had almost 100% participation from our families.

Lunch and Snacks

Teachers have noticed that not everyone has a nutritious lunch and/or snack. Please remember to send your child with a refillable water bottle and a nutritious lunch. Charcuterie boards are popular and fun and easy for children to eat.

Afternoon Carline

  • Thank you for remembering to use your hands free connection while in carline.
  • We appreciate you showing your carline sign on your rearview mirror up until the time your child gets into the vehicle.
  • Please stay in your vehicle.
  • Please pull up close to the vehicle in front of you.
  • If you are not inside the gate, help us keep the line off of Jefferson Highway by creating two lines and take turns going into the gate.
