SMART Start - February 3 - Google Sites - K-8 - Band Room - Bring a device

Cameron will train us to use Google sites. Google sites will be the expectation for your classroom website beginning next year. He will teach you how to customize your classroom site by embedding pictures, calendars, videos, and etc. If you already know how to do this you can use this time to develop your site. We will use two SMART Starts back to back to work on Google sites.


The first round of ISTEP+ starts on the last day of February. We will be working on break out groups, testing locations and schedules in the next couple of weeks. Just a reminder that our daily schedules will be different that week.

School Safety

The bus accident that killed the principal in Indy and injured a few children has raised safety awareness around the state. As a reminder, it is important to be at your assigned supervision area and stay until the busses or vehicles are gone. We appreciate your attention to details while supervising. THANKS!

Summer Building Project

We will update all of you in an upcoming meeting, but we have been working with the kitchen staff, central office and architects to possibly update our kitchen, restrooms in the 3/4th grade area as well as the restrooms in the 5th grade area. There are a few other smaller projects included. None of this has been finalized or bids approved, but we are working on it. More to come at a later date.
