Back to the 90's! - Thursday 1/12/23

We are going back to the 90's! Students are encouraged to wear 90's styles (hip hop) to represent the 90th day of school.

Behavior Bash - Friday 1/13/23

Students will have the opportunity to have fun at the Behavior Bash on Friday. In order to participate in the bash, students need to have an A or B in general conduct, no office referrals, no behavior reports from Block, no needs improvement (N) or unsatisfactory (U) marks in conduct from Block.

Don't Be Tardy for the Education Party!

Did you know that students who arrive late and leave early from school miss out on key learning opportunities such as morning announcements, academic activities, tests, quizzes and social interactions with peers? A student who consistently misses 30 minutes of school a day will loose 2 days of learning in a month.

Please make sure your student arrives to school on time, and try to make necessary appointments after school.

A student is considered tardy at 7:56 a.m. Please make sure your student isn't "tardy for the education party!"

The Start to a Good Day - Breakfast!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It gets our brain and body moving after a long night's rest. Breakfast is important for our students. If your child doesn't eat breakfast at home, he/she does have the opportunity to eat breakfast at school.

Please make sure to have your child at school by 7:45 a.m. to take advantage of our free breakfast. We ask that students arrive on time for breakfast so that they do not miss any learning in the classroom.
