🔵 Morning Drop Off: All car riders should enter the school by the front office, through the playground gate. Once inside the playground gate students have the opportunity to eat breakfast.
No students should be dropped off at the gate between the Elementary and Admin building and walk straight to the Cafeteria.
🔵 STUDIO begins this week for students who have registered. Pickup for STUDIO is at the STUDIO building (corner or Hickory & Park).
🔵 Per our handbook, student birthdays are celebrated one time each month during our "Monthly Birthday Celebration". It is at this time that students may bring store-bought treats to share with their classmates. Please do not drop off birthday treats on days that are not our "Monthly Birthday Celebration Day".
🔵 Our students earned a HAT DAY for reading 1,000,000 words already this year. Hat Day will be celebrated on TUESDAY.

State Attendance Categories
Each year student attendance is grouped into three categories by the state.
1 - Students who have missed less than 8.5 days of the school year. This is where we strive for our students to be.
2- Students who have missed between 9 and 16.5 days of the school year.
3- Chronically absent students fall into the last category, 10% or more. This is equivalent to missing 17 or more days of school this year.
We know that students who are chronically absent generally have a harder time making academic growth.
Thank you for your support to make good attendance a priority with your family.
📚 Academics 📚
We are so excited! Our students have started the first unit of our new Literacy Curriculum.
