News and Tidbits

Hello Families,


I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break! We are looking forward to a productive week, and are especially glad to welcome back our middle school students full time.


The character trait for the month of April is honesty. The definition of honesty is: moral character that connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, straightforwardness, including straightforwardness of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc. Honesty also involves being trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere.


There will be a Title I information meeting on Tuesday, April 6th, for families whose students receive academic support.


Have a great week!


Dr. Jorgensen

Dismissal change before 12pm, please email the teacher directly.

It is important that the front office be aware of all dismissal changes after 12pm to help ensure the dismissal change is received by your student and their teacher.
