A Message From the Principal
We are off and running. Now that we just finished our first 5-day week, we are poised and prepped for many exciting days to come. I believe the first two four-day weeks played a crucial part in getting our students calibrated to start what we hope will be a highly successful year. Thank you to all of our parents who were able to attend our back-to-school nights. We were very appreciative of your presence. If you were not able to attend, please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher.
Mrs. Doughtery's Kindergarten class took a quick break to say "hello" to everyone!
We had our annual School Wide Positive Behavior assembly a little over a week ago, and our students responded beautifully. Our 2019-20 theme is, “Brighten Someone’s Day.” When students do something nice for another person they may earn a cougar slip that details their acts of kindness. Students bring this slip to the office to be praised and recognized for their contribution to our environment. Then, they take the slip home to share it with their parents. Each student’s individual recognition also contributes to the school-wide end-of-year reward party. Students earn a school-wide party by filling the cougar jug by the end of May.
Lastly, I wanted to send an early reminder to parents to clear your calendars for 10/11/2019. We are planning to host our second “Parents Night Out” event! The event will run from 5:30-8:30 pm. Drop the kids off for a few hours in a safe and secure environment and go have a ball! Please keep an eye out for this event in the coming weeks.
