A great first week!
Our students jumped back into learning this week like they never left. Even our very youngest students in 4K and 5K acted like they've been here for months. That is thanks to YOU - thank you for the support and high expectations you provide at home.
The Need to Read
Research tells us that students need to read 30 minutes every day just to maintain their current abilities, and 60 minutes per day to truly advance their skills as readers. At school, we provide at least 30 minutes of independent reading time every day, but in order for students to become better readers, we count on our families to provide students with another 30 minutes of reading every day. That can be a mix of independent reading, shared reading, or reading to your student. And if young students cannot handle 30 minutes yet, make it a goal to reach.
PBIS Schoolwide Expectations
Be safe ~ Be respectful ~ Be engaged
This past Wednesday, every student went through a series of rotations to learn positive expectations in the lunchroom, recess, hallways and bathroom, office and nurse, and before/after school. This chart is posted in every classroom and in hallways as a reminder.
Drop off and Pick up
School ends at 3:35. We need every student picked up promptly because we do not have personnel to supervise students. This week, the office received many calls between 3:15 and 3:30 with requests to keep students late. We cannot do this. Please make arrangements to have someone here on time to pick up students.
School board policy 862 prohibits visitors from bringing animals on school grounds, except for trained and certified service animals. Please leave dogs at home or in the car.
Thank you for supply donations
