Spring Break isn't until after next week!

When we turn the page on our calendars for March, Spring Break will be looking us right in the face. With it comes the opportunity for some down time, some family time, and a chance to sit down with a good book. Some of you will also be leaving early for Spring Break or may be extending your Spring Break beyond the days we have off on our school calendar. As per school board policy 4001.5, most assignments will be given to your child when he/she returns to school. If you want your child to keep up on their school work while on vacation, please have your child check Skyward or Google Classroom as assignments are posted regularly.

Summer School booklets are online!

The Summer School booklet is now posted on our district website. Online registration is from Wednesday, April 22nd at 5:00PM through Sunday, May 10th. This is a great way to help extend your child's learning. We hope that you consider signing your child up for a session or two.

Skyward down over Spring Break

While we are on Spring Break, our Skyward system will be getting an upgrade. During the entirety of Spring Break, both families and staff will be unable to access the grade book or calendar. Please plan accordingly, especially if you are leaving early for your Spring Break destination.

Math success, now and in the future

This week, our Math Meet teams competed in regional competitions. Our teams are pictured below. We are prod of these mathletes as both the 5th/6th grade and 7th/8th grade teams took 4th place. Our 8th graders, as well as those 7th graders in advanced math, are preparing for the Arrowhead math placement test. We are proud of our kids!
