Cell Phone Reminder

Please remind your student to keep their cell phone in their locker during the school day. We are attempting to remove that distraction from the school day so all students can concentrate on academics.

PACK Behavior Expectations

We wanted to review our PACK expectations for students now that we are well into the second quarter of the school year. Our students have done a great job but it is always good to keep our expectations front and center. We expect students to display these traits in all areas of our building, on the athletic fields, courts and mats and most importantly in the community and at home. Our assist teachers will be reviewing these with our students prior to holiday break. It would be great if you (parents) can review these with your student at home.

P - practice respect

A - act responsibly

C - choose to be involved

K - kindness to others
