Shout out to all of you who have worked so hard to ensure your students are coming to school on time and ready to learn. Thank you for your support as we continue to work towards the Thanksgiving Break.


Tardies

  • At the beginning of the year our bell system was down
  • It is now working and we are using them
  • We have been working with students this week to remind them to get to class on time.
  • New tardy policy will begin next week.


Lost and Found

  • Our lost and found if very full.
  • It is located in the Cafeteria.
  • If your student has lost a water bottle, lunch box, back pack, or jacket, please have them check the lost and found
  • Items not picked up will be donated.


**Gentle Reminder**

Please make sure your children are leaving all sunglasses, stuffed animals, earbuds, and baseball caps at home. School is not the place for them. They can get lost or cause a distraction in class.
