Hello SIS/SMS Families;

I hope the start of your student’s school year has been as wonderful as mine. Our staff is excited to have students back in a somewhat normal environment. We are working hard to get everything up and running with class schedules, passing times and after school activities. There is a ton of energy in the buildings from both students and staff, which is awesome. This is going to be an amazing year.

As with the start to any year, we have been going over expectations with all our students. Our fourth and fifth graders have been learning expectations from their specific teachers and had a roundup on Friday. The roundup is a time when each classroom goes to different areas on campus and is taught the specific expectations for that area. The specific areas are restrooms, office, transition between buildings, crosswalk, cafeteria, library, playground, bus loading and unloading and technology. All of these areas have specific expectations for success.

At the sixth through eighth grade levels, I have met with all grade levels and gone over the handbook teaching points. Click the button below to view them. All of the students that were in attendance have signed a sheet that states they attended the expectations meeting. Those that were absent or new, will be meeting with me to go over the expectations and sign as well.

The seventh and eighth graders have all been assigned lockers and locks. As with any skill, learning to work a combination lock can take a few days. The students are doing a great job and getting much better at it. We are not holding students accountable for tardies at this time. We usually give a week or so in order to develop that skill through practice and training with staff.

Please make sure you read all the other information that is attached to this newsletter. Mrs. Nau and her office folks work extremely hard to keep you informed of everything that is happening at school and in our after school activities.

Have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing everyone around school.

Mr. Proctor
