The Skipper Scoop

Week of September 10th


It was a beautiful weekend and I hope you got some time to enjoy it! Skippers are busy this fourth week of school academically and athletically. It's hard to believe we are almost halfway through the first quarter of school. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your student, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Make it a great week!

Mrs. Rumbarger

QR Code

The office has a new check in/check out system for kids that leave throughout the day. The office offers a different QR code everyday that students need to zap when they come in the building, or leave the building. A QR code is a machine readable code that is made up of black and white squares. Students use their smartphones or Chromebooks to read the code. As they check in and out, the data is sent to a spreadsheet. Thanks to Mrs. Rock and Mrs. Kaszmer for streamlining this process for our students.
