Badger Exam

Next week we will begin taking the Badger Exam. This week we did some practice for the test in order to learn how the testing platform works. Please remind your child that they will need a fully charged Chromebook and headphones or earbuds for their test. We have been reminding students of this all week. Thanks for your assistance.

Dress code reminders

Well, the weather certainly changed quickly this week so we had no issues with our dress code. Next week it will be warming up again, so here is a reminder of the expectations for our dress code.
  1. No undergarments should be showing.
  2. If your arms are at your side and your fingers touch skin, what you're wearing is too short.
If students are able to correct any dress code violation with clothes that they have at school, families will be contacted to make them aware of the infraction. If students are unable to correct any dress code violation, students will remain in the office until proper clothing can be provided.
