Learning To Learning... It's All Part Of The Journey...

Principals' Weekly Mesaage

From The Principal's Desk...

As we head into week #5, it's clear to see the students are becoming more accustomed to their new structure. We are definitely doing a lot of things really well, and I am very proud of the direction we are heading. However, like with anything, there is always room for improvement. This week's theme will be centered around RESPECT. I will be helping students gain a deeper understanding of this word and how their CHOICES in the moment can affect future opportunities. I would ask, if you have the time, please talk with your child/children about doing the "right thing." As we know the "right thing" isn't always the popular decision. With external forces like Tik Tok promoting vandalism in school bathrooms, it sometimes feels as though we are fighting a losing battle. However, we all need to chip away a little at a time to help our student body grow and become more understanding. I definitely appreciate your partnership in this journey, as every child deserves and needs a champion.


That's all for now. I hope everyone has a great weekend.


Yours in education,


Dean W. Packard - Principal

Parent / Caregiver QR Code Dismissal Process (PLEASE COMPLETE IF YOU PICK UP YOUR CHILD


On Monday, Mr. Packard will be handing out QR codes for parents who are picking up their students. All you need to do is disply the code and we will record it. Your child's name will populate on the big screen in the auditorium. This will allow us to record who is picking up each day and expedite the overall process.


We are creating an innovative process to move along our pick up process. If you pick up your child or children on a daily basis, please fill out this Form. We will be giving you a QR code to display upon pick up. Once we click on the code it will appear on a big screen in our auditorium. Plus, we will have a documented list of pick ups for our record. Thanks for your assistance.
