News To Know

Student Forgot Device?

Occasionally, a student may forget his/her device at home. Please avoid delivering the device to campus. Our teachers are prepared to offer an alternative assignment, if needed, for the day the device is forgotten at home.

Device Update

Your child should charge his/her device every night.


Device fees are due! As a campus, we are at 69.5% paid! If you have not yet paid your child's $25 device fee, please do so! You may send cash or check (made out to MISD) to the school, or you may pay online at MySchoolBucks! I would LOVE to the be the first school at 100% paid and appreciate your help in making that happen!

Tardies and Safety

Our car line is amazing! The line is clear most days at 7:43 which allows learners plenty of time to get to their classrooms by time the tardy bell rings at 7:45.


If your child are late, please park and walk him/her into the front office. Please do not send a late child to the front door without adult supervision!


The front doors automatically lock at 7:45 am. The front office will have to buzz you in.

Safety Patrol

Safety Patrol is officially starting on Monday, Sept. 24th! 4th and 5th Grade volunteers who are interested in assisting staff with morning duty can sign up here! A variety of jobs are available ranging from helping students out of their cars, holding the school doors, and monitoring the hallways. All students who sign up will have an opportunity to assist at each position at some point throughout the year.

Volunteer Requirements:

  • Safety Patrol volunteers will need to be dropped off at 7:15 (cafeteria side) or ride the bus to get ready for student arrival each morning.

  • Students need to exhibit exemplary behavior in their classroom as well as any time they are assisting teachers during morning arrival.

  • Students will need to be dressed in appropriate clothing for weather conditions.

Sign up for safety patrol here (case sensitive):

Sign ups for the second semester will go out before Christmas. We are excited for students to display their leadership skills in Safety Patrol!

News to Know

Attendance

One of our campus goals is to increase attendance by 1% for the year, and since September is attendance awareness month, we will share some attendance resources with you.


Also, to encourage good attendance, we will recognize the class with the best attendance each month. At the end of each nine weeks, we will host an atten"dance" for each student who is present from bell to bell each day.


Thank you for helping us earn great attendance by bringing your child(ren) to school on time each and every day!

Genius Hour

We started Genius Hour this week and had a blast! Check out some pictures above!


If you are interested in running a club or assisting in one, we would love to have you for future sessions! We are actively seeking someone to host a wood shop club to make Home Depot quick build projects (birdhouse, car, picture frame, etc.). We have the supplies. We just need volunteers to help! Let me know if you are interested! shannon_west@misd.gs
