School Improvement Council (SIC) Meeting

On Tuesday, November 30th at 9:00 am, we will be holding the first of two meetings this year. This meeting is intended for all stakeholders of our school, including parents, staff, and community members. You may attend this meeting in-person at the school, or you may join virtually through this link.

We will be coming together to review school information about our staff, building improvements/needs, safety, instructional goals, Covid updates, State Report Card information and much more. We will answer your questions or concerns and enjoy conversations about all of the wonderful things happening in our school!

We will meet in the school's auditorium, so please park in the side parking lot where you will enter and exit through the auditorium doors.

Coming soon...

As Covid numbers decrease significantly, we are looking forward to resuming normal activities mid-January.

When we return from Winter Break, we will be making plans for an updated calendar which will detail events for the spring semester. We are looking forward to having parents back in our school! We are planning for the following -

  • Lunch in the cafeteria where parents are welcome!
  • Performances and Art Shows
  • Field Trips
  • Awards Days
  • The Sweetheart Swing Dance!
  • Terrific Kid Celebrations in person

And much more!

Let's keep our fingers crossed that the numbers stay low so we can enjoy all of these events!

Great news!

Superintendent Wilson is giving each elementary and middle school $25,000 for capital improvements to the schools. We have already begun working with our PTO Board and school staff to identify these needs.

Please join us for the meeting on November 30 to hear more about this!
