"Start With Hello" Week

This week we will be participating in "Start With Hello" week. This initiative was created after the tragic violence that took place at Sandy Hook. The Sandy Hook Promise is to "protect America’s children from gun violence in honor of the precious lives that were lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School."

Each day on the morning announcements Mrs. Overby will issue the "challenge or theme" for the day.

Parent Reading Resource

Helping Your Child with Reading - This site has at-home ideas for helping your child with phonemic awareness (hearing sounds), phonics (adding the symbol to the sound), fluency (reading automatically) and comprehension (understanding what you read).

Updates & Reminders

  • If you have not completed the beginning of year online paperwork, please do so ASAP.
  • School begins at 7:50 each day. Any students arriving after 7:50 are tardy and will need to be taken to the office to check-in.
  • All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask while inside at school. This is for the safety of all and to limit the number of quarantines due to exposures. Students can take their masks off inside to eat and can play outside at recess or PE without their masks.
  • Please contact the school nurse or your child’s teacher if your child has been sick, exposed to COVID, or tested positive for COVID.

Check out these photos from family night! We hope more of you can join us next time!
