Bulldog P.R.I.D.E.

Bulldog P.R.I.D.E. stands for:

P - Politeness

R - Respect

I - Integrity

D - Discipline

E - Effort

Our students earn "PAWS" for demonstrating Bulldog PRIDE and when a class earns 25 paws they earn a "Golden Bulldog." Our school-wide expectations are reinforced through daily morning meetings, monthly PRIDE pow-wows, and quarterly Bulldog P.R.I.D.E. assemblies. We encourage all parents to review these expectations at home and discuss ways that students can connect these expectations to their responsibilities at home and within our community.

Reminders from our School Nurse


The peak of the cold and flu season is upon us. To prevent widespread flu in the school, we recommend that your child stay home from school if experiencing flu or cold symptoms. To decide whether or not to send your child to school, please consider the following guidelines:

Keep your child at home for treatment and observation if he or she has any of these symptoms:

· Fever (greater than 100 degrees by mouth)

· Vomiting (even once)

· Diarrhea

· Chills

· General malaise or feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches

· Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough

· Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose

If you have any questions, please contact Kim Hayes, RN, school nurse at (804) 739-6267.

K-1 Gifted Referral Window

If you are interested in referring your (K-1) child for gifted screening, please contact Mrs. Jones for a referral form. All referral forms are due by March 15.
