Counselor's Quote of the Week
"Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give".
Planning for after school transportation for your student can be difficult and changes happen. Filling out a Ticket to Ride or Change Ticket, can simplify this process. A primary plan for each student should already be arranged with your student's homeroom teacher. However, if there is a change, you can fill out one of the attached tickets (Ticket to Ride and Daily Change Tickets are ONLY good for ONE day). A Ticket to Ride is for bussing changes, a Daily Change Ticket is for all other changes. All tickets must be filled out completely by the parent/guardian and returned to the elementary office to be signed/verified by office staff. A new ticket will be needed for each additional day there is a change.

Homecoming Dress Up Days
Fourth grade students enjoyed bowling for their September Responsibility Reward.
Kindergarten celebrates each letter of the alphabet and their phonic sounds in the first weeks of school. This week they shared in the glorious marriage of Ms. Q and Mr. U and students were able to walk down the aisle as the Q and U. After a brief service of sharing the history of Q and U needing each other to form words, Kindergarten teacher, Lora Jacobson, pronounced them Mr. and Mrs. Qu (Phonetically pronounced "Kwa"). The kids danced and celebrated the Qu couple. Some classes even enjoyed the wedding cake!!
