Spirit Week!!!

To kick off the New Year, students leaders Drew, Christopher, and Grant have planned a Spirit Week to help raise money to add turf to the ground in the Gaga Ball Pit!

They are hoping for a $1 donation each day to dress up in the following ways:

Monday: Favorite Team Jersey Day

Tuesday: Hat Day

Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday

Thursday: Olympic Sporting Event Day (dress up to show your favorite sport)

Friday: Stuffed Animal Day


Parking Lot Reminders

Just a few parking lot reminders to kick off 2020!

  • The Upper Parking lot is for Staff and Buses only. Please do not park in the upper parking lot. It impedes the buses ability to load, unload, and exit the school.
  • Please DO NOT exit your car in the Carpool Lane. If you would like to park and help your child out of the car, please use one of the parking spaces in the lower parking lot and then use the crosswalk.
  • Please pull all the way forward in the carpool lane. It creates quite a back-up onto Silver Springs Drive when cars stop at the main entrance. There are at least 2-3 adults in the carpool lane each morning to ensure that your child gets into the building safely.

Thank you for helping us to make sure that student safety is our number 1 priority!!!

Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

7-Habits Take Home Activity for January

This month’s Habit: Habit 3 Put First Things First

Activity: Color, Symbol, Image

Due Date: January 31, 2018

Habit #3 Put First Things First- "Work First, Then Play"

What this means: Focus on what is important, schedule the important things first. Don’t be a dreamer - stay focused!

“I spend my time on things that are most important.”

“I say no to things I know I should not do.”

“I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.”

“I am disciplined and organized.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Do your homework as soon as you come home from school.

2. Do something you have been putting off for a long time.

3. Think about your most important responsibilities. Do them first.
