CHANGING TRAFFIC PATTERNS

Thank you so much for your patience with the constantly changing traffic patterns. We are getting very short notice before major changes occur. We will do our best to get new information to you as quickly as possible.


We were told we will be able to use the entrance from Main Street into the elementary and middle school parking lots and drive on Monday. If anything changes, we will do our best to make sure you know.

HIGH SCHOOL LEADERSHIP STUDENTS - HELP INCOMING FRESHMAN BEGIN THE TRANSITION

On Wednesday, a group of students from Mrs. Osterhout-Koch's Leadership Skills Application class, Rylee Weeks, Hadley Kettwich, Anna Burrow, and Isaac O'Dell, planned and hosted a Field Day for the incoming Freshmen to welcome them to the high school! Students participated in games, had a picnic lunch, and listened to a Q and A discussion where they got to ask questions to a panel of high school students and teachers. It was a great day and Rylee, Hadley, Anna. and Isaac did such a great job planning and executing this event!

THANK YOU CONCORD ATHLETIC BOOSTERS AND MONSTER MOTORS!!!!

Earlier this year, our faithful, old golf cart, mended by duct tape, fell into disrepair. Our outstanding athletic trainer was getting in her steps and carrying a lot of weight until the Concord Athletic Boosters and Monster Motors swooped in to help. Both organizations donated funds to enable the district to purchase a Gator. On Thursday, we received our brand new John Deere Gator!!! Thank you so much Athletic Boosters and Monster Motors!!! We GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR GENEROSITY!!!

ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL SEL CORNER

Since we have finished the new Traits of the Week for the year, now it's time to take a look back at our favorites and see what needs to be tweaked for next year! This week our K-8 students have been reflecting on a year's worth of traits and sharing with us about their favorites/which ones are most important-- so far, students have reported that honestly, collaboration and self-control are most important (although students across the building are making strong cases for the importance of many other traits too!).


If you are interested in supporting student learning around our traits, this is our full list from the year...and we will be using the same ones heading into next year too!
