Note from the Principal
It is hard to believe that we have already been in school for over 3 weeks! Even with Hurricane Dorian visiting us, the year has started out well. Our students have arrived ready to learn and have settled into the daily routines. You are your child’s first teacher and we partner with you on this journey. You can help by asking your child about his/her day, having a positive attitude about learning, and encouraging reading every night. You would be amazed what 20 minutes of reading with your child each night will do for his/her language development and reading skills.
This year, report cards will be distributed at parent conferences. Dates for conferences are October 15 (8:00-5:30); October 16 (3:00-5:30) and October 23 (3:00-5:30). Times will vary based on your child’s teacher’s schedule.
Thank you for all you do in support our of school community!
Students and teachers gathered at the flag pole to say the pledge and sing patriotic songs on September 11th.
Parents learned about the technology and programs we use here at school at Tech Night.
The cheerleaders brought the school spirit to the 5th through 8th grade soccer pep rally.
Restorative Practice Corner
What are Restorative practices?
Restorative practices take incidents that might otherwise result in punishment and create opportunities for students to:
- Become aware of the impact of their behavior.
- Understand the obligation to take responsibility for their actions.
- Take steps toward making things right.
Why are we using Restorative practices?
Restorative practices ensures that students stay in school learning, rather than removing them from the school environment.
