Reminders & Updates!

Next school year 2016-2017

The district has decided to keep our students time the same as this year. So there will be no change in the students schedule. Students will be in school from 7:55-2:55!


The last report card will be sent home with the I-station report that tells them where the student is with reading. Please see Ms. Sternes if you do not know how to access this report.

TTM/ISIP (3rd-5th)

3rd-5th grade students will have access at home during the summer for Think Through Math and I-Station. This is a great opportunity for all students to keep working during the summer to be prepared for the next grade level. Let's take advantage of this opportunity and ensure all students have their passwords. We will be posting this on the website as well to ensure parents know how to access it.


As we begin to wrap up the last weeks of school please remember to keep yourself organized. We enter the last week of this six weeks, grades, honor roll and perfect attendance will all be due. So please pace yourselves to ensure you are on top of the game.

Wrapping up the school year is also amongst our reach.

Soon we will be:

  • Setting up next year's classes and sections
  • Creating supply list for next year
  • lpac folder updates
  • cum folders updates
  • parent meetings for those being retained... etc..

Hang in there! We are almost there!
