Message from the Principal:

Thank you parents for attending conferences! The end of first quarter is Friday, October 31, 2014.

We now have our homework bus every Wednesday and Thursday nights so students can stay with their teachers until 4:10 PM as the bus leaves at 4:15 PM. Please contact your teachers on when they are staying after for support.

We have our first parent workshop on Wednesday, October 29 at 6:30 PM in the library. This night was created from the feedback of our Bearcat’s P.U.L.L. (Parents Ultimately Limiting Loss) group.

The new procedures for lockers and transitions to classes have helped create more efficient and quieter hallway experiences. The implementation of CHAMPS in every classroom has also created a consistent vocabulary for teaching classroom expectations that each student experiences in every classroom. We are beginning phase two or Reading Apprenticeship training, which means teachers will be utilizing more critical thinking strategies to engage students in thinking about their reading.

MAP testing is almost done we will finish all testing by October 22, 2014.  

Picture Retakes will be Friday, October 24, 2014.

CHANGE OF INFORMATION: Please make sure your student(s) contact information is correct and current. It is very important that this information is kept current at all times. Please make sure the contact names are correct as we will NOT release any student to anyone who is not on the master list. Please call or stop by the school office.

PARENT CONNECT: Is a web portal for parents to access information about their students. Lunch information, grades and news from school will be available with a simple login and password. Contact the school secretary to sign up today.

MEDICATION: All prescribed medications must have a written prescription form from the physician accompanying any medications given out to the students. Please make sure all prescriptions are clearly labeled, including inhalers. Inhalers must have a prescription on the box, or labeled on the inhaler without a box. This ensures us that we are administering the correct medications to your students. Thank you for your cooperation.
