Message from the Boss...


Thank you so much for your hard work, flexibility and dedication to testing week. It was a great week and so proud of everyone.

NOW...let's finish out the school year strong. Be sure that you plan engaging lessons for students. Keep routines and schedules the same as much as possible. If you give the students any down time they will take advantage of it and discipline will go up! Any movie days or incentive days will need prior approval. Those are the times that students take advantage of the situations and again behavior increases.

Couple of things to add to your calendar:

  1. We will have a short faculty meeting on Tuesday, April 16th.
  2. High School ROTC will be here Monday, April 15th for flag education. All 5th grade students will report to the 5th grade gym at 9:00. All 6th grade students will report to the 5th grade gym at 1:30. We will do an all call.
  3. Math PLC on Tuesday, April 16th during plan time. 5th grade 8:30 6th grade 12:35. Please bring with you your pacing guides. We will be discussing pacing for the upcoming school year.
  4. Progress Reports are due to go home on Friday, April 19th.
  5. Supplemental Salary Notebooks due Friday, April 19th.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Casey Hanna

Cooler weather seems to have arrived, and cold weather will soon be the norm. Keep a watch for students that are coming to school each day without an appropriate jacket/coat, socks, and/or shoes. Please make sure that you contact Mrs. True, Mrs. Terrell or myself to get proper weather attire.


Please remember to notify the cafeteria manager of any field trips that will be taking kiddos out of lunches so I can make the appropriate changes to our counts.

Also IF sack lunches will be needed the cafeteria manager needs to know approximately how many will need a lunch- including bus drivers and teachers at least 3 weeks before the field trip to order in sack lunch foods.

The morning of the field trip or the day before a field trip a final count and the names of those receiving the lunch will be needed. This is for accounting purposes and allergies.

Thanks so much!

Field Trips have been opened up. There is a limit to the number of busses that can leave for the day, so dates are on a first come first serve basis. Here are a couple of guidelines:

**Field Trips need to be requested as normal. Please make sure the correct date format is used. For example, 01/01/2019. We need accurate counts for students and teachers. Please do not estimate. We need to be notified at least a week in advance of any changes to the number of riders.

**We are only able to provide five drivers per day. Once we have reached our limit for a particular day, field trips will be closed.

**Trips should be scheduled to leave no earlier than 8:30AM. ALL trips should return to the school before 2:00PM. These times will allow for potential traffic delays.

**Incidental fees (i.e. Entrance or admittance fees) for drivers will be be covered by the school or a receipt(s) from the driver to be reimbursed will be sent to the building principal for processing.

**If more buses are requested than are needed and a driver has already been scheduled for the trip, the school will be responsible for the pay of the extra driver.

**Teachers/Sponsors are responsible for the behavior of the students while on the trip. Students and staff need to remain seated while the bus is moving.

**Teachers/Sponsors need to check the bus at the end of the trip to make sure their students have not left personal items, such as backpacks, instruments, cell phones, or trash on the bus.
