From the Principal:

Coming up this Tuesday is our last Parent Night for the 16-17 school year! It is a night where students/parents meet the next grade level of teachers for 17-18. Please join us for this special parent night, from 6:00-7:00 P.M. It's hard to believe that we are already looking ahead to the next school year!

Also, next week we will have Early Release on Wednesday, April 26. All students will need to be picked up at 11:55 A.M. Our teachers have scheduled an afternoon of parent/teacher conferences that day. If you have not been contacted for a conference, and would like one, please email your child's teacher and let them know!

Thanks! Have a great weekend!

Counselor's Corner :

The character trait for April is TRUSTWORTHINESS. A person who is trustworthy lives with integrity, is honest, and is dependable. People who are trustworthy work hard to maintain a good reputation. Talk as a family about ways you strive to be trustworthy in your job and in your family. Help your children think of ways they can become more trustworthy; perhaps by admitting mistakes or being quick to apologize or perhaps by remembering to do chores that they say they will do.

From Our Nurse:

Parents of all 6th grade students: Please be aware that your student has been given a letter with next year requirements for immunizations…. Please contact the nurse with any questions or concerns…. Your student will not be able to start 7th grade without these vaccines.

Mustang Math Camp:

Give your child a jump start for math by sending them to Mustang Math Camp ....they will have a blast doing it!
