A Note from Mrs. Wagner

Dear Families,

It's been a wonderful first month of the school year! Thank you for sharing your children with us and trusting us to help them grow socially, emotionally, and academically. The first month of school was spent focusing on setting expectations, building connections, and completing our beginning of the year assessments so we can develop the best plan for your child's learning.

We're so excited to celebrate our strong attendance for the month of August.

Overall Attendance: 97.62%

Total Number of Tardies: 54 (this is a little high, let's try to get to class on time)

  • Please remember if your child is arriving after 8:50 you'll need to walk in and sign them in.

Absence Updates:

  • In order to code an absence as "medical", the district is asking that a doctors note be provided to the office.

Car Line Updates:

  • Please hang your car tag from your visor or review mirror - this helps speed up our car line. The car tags are easily cut to create a "hook" or you can use a binder clip, baby hanger, etc. to hang it from your visor/review mirror.
  • Please leave the car tag hanging in until your child loads into the vehicle. We reference the names on the tag multiple times to help line up the students by the correct number for loading.
