From the Principal, Cindy Dziadosz
November brings a time to reflect on what we are grateful for in our lives. As a principal, I am always grateful for the many hardworking and motivated students in our school, the many wonderful and supportive families as well as our hardworking and dedicated staff members.
For our school and community we are especially grateful for the service of our Veterans. Our school enjoys hosting the community Veteran's Day Celebration each year and appreciate our Veteran's who come to talk with the students about their experiences. This year we will be celebrating on the observed day, Monday November 12th.
Our ultimate goal of providing a solid education which focuses on student growth is achieved through high expectations for quality teaching and student achievement. We are committed to providing a safe, positive learning environment to ensure academic success and solid character development.
Our teachers are always willing to communicate and be of help to you and your child. Please feel free to contact them by phone or their school email address. If you have a question or concern I urge you to communicate with the teacher first as they can best share information directly about your child. Our students individual growth and success continue to be at the forefront of all that we do.
We invite you to tour our district and school website, or follow us on Facebook and become familiar with our wonderful school. If I can be of assistance in any way please stop by or give me a call at 913-757-4417.
Did You Know?
- In our school students participate in Principal's Round Table
Two to three students are selected each month from each classroom to have a special lunch with the principal. The group talks about upcoming events at the school and students are given the opportunity to problem-solve and share ideas on school improvement. All students will have the opportunity to participate on this activity by the end of the school year.
Consistent attendance is like a book: if you miss chapters 3,8 and 12, how can you understand what’s going on in the story? When students miss school, they are missing valuable instruction- in multiple content areas- that simply cannot be replaced, and complete understanding is difficult to achieve. It’s not just absences- it’s tardies as well. When students are tardy it sets the tone for the day- they are always trying to catch up. Students are often embarrassed as well, entering class as everyone else is already settled. They miss out on valuable socializing and camaraderie that occurs while students are getting settled and prepared for the day. In addition, for the students who struggle with organization and keeping up, being tardy severely impacts how their day will proceed. Attendance matters and we need your help!
Students arriving from 8:10 a.m.-9:45 will be counted tardy. Excessive tardies are unacceptable. Ten tardies will equal a half day absence.
HALF DAY: If the student arrives after 9:45 or leaves before 2:15 it will be counted as a half day absent.
FULL DAY ABSENCE: If a student arrives after 2:15 they will be counted absent for the full day.
