Things and Stuffs
No Outside Food, please
Please remember that the district has a no outside food policy.
What does this really mean?
You are not to bring in outside food (ie fast food; Cane's, McDonald's, Wendy's, etc.) during the day for your child. This has been made a district policy not only because of allergies, but the distraction and disruption that an outside lunch or snack causes is bigger than most parents realize.
You CAN bring in a forgotten lunch box to your child before lunch time.
Picture Day is coming....
Picture day is Tuesday, SEPTEMBER 12th.
Just a reminder there will be NO pre-ordering of the pictures. You will be emailed directly by Jostens with the proof of your child's picture (about 2 weeks after picture day). You can then decide if you would like to order printed pictures or have retakes done. Pictures will be shipped directly to you. No more having your child 'forget' them in their backpack only to be found 4 months later with a moldy peanut butter and jelly sandwich squished all over the crumpled pictures.

A lot of great stuff has been happening in the building! The students did a great job working hard on the first of 3 I-Ready tests for the 23-24 school year. Throughout the month of September I will begin making my way through classrooms to do the first guidance lesson. The focus of the lesson will be to meet the counselor. Students will learn how to request to see me and navigate my google classroom and website. The students used their #VOICE by completing a needs assessment for me to better understand what their social emotional needs are. There are a lot of great events going on in the community during the month of September. I know my family plans to attend a few.
