4th/5th Checkins:

  • Check ins will not be occurring in 4th/5th grade this week. Once new dates have been secured with grade levels/technology, we will let everyone know.


Academic All Stars:

  • UNC sent our school 42 flyers with codes to attend a Men's Basketball game in November. This is a K-5 program and UNC would like us to select students based on academic growth or character achievements. Please work with your grade level to select students that ROAR consistently and/or have shown lots of growth (you can consider last years information) to receive these flyers. It would be wonderful to send these flyers home with students next week. Each grade level can add seven names. Please make sure you work to have a name from each homeroom and that your grade level list is as balanced as possible. See Carla if you have questions.


November Teacher Meeting/Boosterthon:

  • The Boosterthon team would like for us to adjust the November Staff meeting to be directly after the Pep rally. Please make note of this date change - Pep Rally and November Staff Meeting will be held on November 8th!


School Improvement Plan:


  • Attached to this Jaguar Journal is the latest version of our 2018-19 School Improvement Plan. Please read over it and provide any feedback/questions to your rep. We will discuss the plan at our meeting Tuesday. We will need all certified staff members to complete the following form to vote on approving the plan prior to Friday. Plans will be shared with the School Board on November 5th.
