Bulldog Back to School Bash
What a cute Dynamic DAWG!
Campus Clean Up Day
Planting Bushes goes quicker when we work as a team.
Students were divided into four houses (red, blue, yellow, green) to work together on building leadership skills and to plan and implement a service project. Dynamic DAWGS give back!
Attendance and Punctuality
Good attendance goes hand in hand with punctuality. Gaps in learning are a product of missing class. More and more research is being produced every day that indicates that success in reading on grade level, benchmarking on standardized testing, graduating from high school and maintaining a job may all be linked to good school attendance. If we as parents don't have our students in class every day, we are contributing to the possibility of them falling behind their peers academically. That can easily be prevented by communicating to our children the importance of their education and by planning appointments, vacations and other activities around the school day whenever possible.
Let's work together to prepare a profitable path for our children by teaching them good, old-fashioned disciplined behaviors such as respect and perseverance through punctuality and attendance in school.
