Average Attendance for Dec. 5-9: 86.3%

This is the lowest we've seen. We understand that the flu and other viruses are going around right now, and that is why we need everyone to take their attendance very seriously at the beginning of the year, so you have the days when you need them. If you are on an attendance contract, please make sure that you are verifying the absence with a doctor's slip or coming in to see our nurse.

Our attendance goal is 95% this year. We need to stick together Cyclones and make sure we reach our goal. It all starts with you and showing up each and every day to school.

Attendance = Academic Success = Lifelong Success

Visit for more tips on helping your child keep/have good attendance.

$5.00 Bookfair at School this Week Only

Starting Tuesday, students can bring $ in to go to the $5.00 Bookfair. It will be open daily in the mornings from 7:50-8:30. Please keep in mind that tax is involved, so you will need to send in the extra (7%) tax for the amount they are planning to spend. There are many great gift ideas for siblings so if some are completing their shopping this is a great way to do it. Parents, if you would like to come in, please contact the office and we will also schedule a time for you to shop as well. You may also shop online at using the link and information in the flyer below. Thank You to Justin Miller, preschool parent and Usborne Representative for putting this opportunity together to help SCE raise money for their Playground Project.
