Message from Principal Perkins (14 Instructional Days Left in Quarter 3)

Good evening Trix Families,

I hope this message meets you prepared and ready to take on a new week. Daylight savings took place this weekend and we lost an hour. However, I am excited about having longer days and that Spring feeling is coming through. I anticipate our scholars being a little sleep this week, so lets make sure they get to be a little earlier tonight.

For the second week in a row our average daily attendance has went up. We increased our attendance by 2% last week from 80% to 82%. Let's continue the awesome progress and ensure our scholars are able to maximize their instructional time with their teachers.

Intent to Return Forms are due by March 31st (FINAL DEADLINE). Please complete online or return your hardcopy.

Lastly, please fill out our Face Mask Survey. Parent feedback is importance to us.

Let's make it a WONDERFUL WEEK!!

Thank you parents for all that you do!


Ms. L. Perkins, M.Ed
