The number is 1-800-883-6463. You will not be able to order online. If you were not happy with their pictures, you may return the picture packet on retake day so the photographer will know retakes are necessary.

Attendance Goal

Attendance is an important indicator of student success. It is essential that students be at school everyday. In order to promote good attendance this year, we are tracking our attendance each month. Our school goal is for our attendance to be at 96.5 at the end of the year. We will be giving a shout out at our Character Connections each month to the grade levels who are at or about our goal. The numbers for October are below:


1st-97.46

2nd -98.00

3rd- 97.44

4th-98.46

5th-97.78

Kinder-95.78

School Total-97.52

Goal-96.50


Another piece of successful attendance is making sure students are on time in the morning and stay until the end of the day. Early checkouts cause students to miss out on important concepts and lessons. Please limit early checkouts if at all possible.
