Message from the Principal:
The first quarter is done and we are quickly approaching our first holiday break. We will be hosting a student award celebration for each grade level on Monday, Novemeber 25th, 2013 just before each lunch, as we have many Bearcats that are demonstrating R.O.A.R. (Respect, Ownership, Attitude, Responsibility) this year.
On Tuesday, November 26th, 2013 the staff and students will have a traditional Thanksgiving meal as we are greateful for the many joys our students bring to use. Each grade level teacher will join their students during their normal lunch times.
We are excited to have a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention Supports) coach in our building and our school PBIS team is working on a few new initiatives to start after Thanksgiving break. These initiatives will include celebrations for our "Theme of the Week", this means each week the team will pick areas to measure. For example, every student in a class being on-time and then if the goal is achieved we will give the class small rewards of fun school materials.

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.
