In celebration of Halloween we will allow students to wear their costumes to school on Wednesday, Oct. 30th as it leads into the dance that evening from 5pm - 7pm. Costumes will also be allowed at the dance.


Please remember that costumes must allow you to still participate in all classroom activities including PE.


Costume Expectations:

  • Refrain from blood and gore
  • Student faces must be visible, avoid masks that cover the entire face
  • Look alike weapons are not permitted


We will not be wearing costumes on the 31st.

Drop off and Pick up

It's definitely getting colder and darker during morning drop off. Just a few reminders for early drop offs. Our entry way is not open until 7:00 am. Students dropped off prior to 7:00 am will be waiting outside.

After school students must be out of the building by 3:05 unless supervised by an adult or in study hall. Students waiting on rides may wait quietly in the entry way. If students are waiting until 4:00 pm or later for afternoon rides they will be asked to wait in study hall.

Mark Your Calendars - Parent Teacher Conferences are Approaching

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on

Wednesday, November 6th and Thursday, November 7th from 4pm to 7pm both nights.


We will provide you with a copy of your student's 1st marking period report card, NWEA scores, M-Step reports and Parent Portal access as well as an opportunity to meet with all of your child's teachers. Teachers will be available on a first come first serve basis and we try to keep conferences to only 5 minutes a piece to make sure everyone has the opportunity to see the teachers. We look forward to seeing you there!

Parent Tech Support Available during Conferences

Our Tech Department will be hosting a Parent Tech Night during Conferences on Nov. 6th and 7th. Parent Teacher Conferences will run from 4pm - 7pm on both nights.

Backpacks and Jackets remain in Lockers

Just a reminder as the weather is starting to become cooler, all backpacks and jackets need to be stored in student lockers. These items should not be taken to the classrooms. Our classrooms are usually warm, but if your child tends to be cold, make sure that they have a sweatshirt or sweater to wear as needed in the classrooms. If your child is having trouble with their locker, have them stop by the office we are happy to help.
