From Mrs Tennenbaum
Things are settling in and students are learning the routines and procedures of their classes and the building. Please continue to encourage your students to be good role models every day.
"Be Respectful, Take ownership, Have a positive attitude and Be remarkable." Please make sure you download Pikmykid to report your students absent or for early dismissals. It also allows us to communicate daily dismissal information. We have 63% of our families signed up -- we need 100%.
We don't do Average, we do Awesome!
We are all in this together!

If you are in the parent pick up line, please go on the app and ANNOUNCE for your student. This allows us to get them kids ready and in order for a speedy pick up.
If you haven't already registered, please do so!
There can only be 2 guardians for each student and they must be listed in Infinite Campus and emergency contacts #1 and #2 and the email's have to match from Infinite campus. Both of these Guardians will be able to make changes to their students' dismissal.
To add a second Guardian, The guardian #1 can reach out to the PIKMYKID parent support team and get connected to their child, as long as they have their Student's PIKMYKID ID# from the car tag.
Delegates can be added to a student by the guardians . They include ( grandparents, babysitter, neighbors) these delegates can not make adjustments to the students dismissal process.
Dates to remember
September 12: Picture Day
September 20: PTO meeting 7:00 pm
Coming Soon -- School Store Fundraiser
You will find important information about a safe and easy way your family can help our school get the essential tools our students and teachers need to succeed. It will also let you know how your child can win fun prizes just for helping!
Students are placed into two different categories for transportation to and from school.
If your child is a WALKER this means that they were not provided a bus route because they live in the walking vicinity of the school.
If your child lives outside the walking vicinity, they are assigned a bus.
If you would rather drop them off and/or pick them up in a vehicle you must use the designated Parent Pick up/ Drop off line only. Due to safety reasons we do not want students to be dropped off in any other area inside or outside of the school ground. We realize that our parent pick up line can get quite long but our team of staff members does a very efficient job of getting students dismissed. We kindly ask that you do not park on the side streets and identify your student as a walker. Parking on the side streets gets crowded and it makes it difficult for busses to get through and it is a concern from the residences.
Please use the Pikmykid app to make any changes.
