Message from the Principal:

It is already time for conferences for the 3rd quarter, which is Thursday, March 5 from 3:30PM to 7:30 PM . This month will also bring closure to the 3rd quarter on March 27th. Please contact your student’s teachers if they are struggling in any classes or need to make up assignments. The Before/After School program is a great time for students to get extra help and time to complete their missing work.

The Bearcat’s PULL team (Parents Ultimately Limiting Loss) will be kicking off a “Canvassing” campaign at Conferences on Thursday, March 5th. If you cannot attend more information will be provided in the Shoppers as well as a letter sent home with Progress report cards.

At the end of February, our PBIS team celebrated 45 students for “FAB” Friday, this means students had zero Reflection Room Trips, Safety Referrals, and Tardies as well as a grade of “C” or better in all 7 classes. Congratulations all “FAB” Friday participants!!! Each month the tracking starts over so we hope to have even more students next time.  

Our EdYES report for school improvement will be reviewed with parents at our next PTO meeting on Wednesday, March 11th at 3PM and at our Bearcat’s PULL meeting, which is Thursday, March 12th at 7:00PM. Please come and share your input as we continue to work on our school improvement plan.  

Friday, March 27th is a half day for students as teachers will have professional development training in the afternoon.

Spring break is quickly approaching and a reminder this year we will have Friday April 3rd off and the week of April 6th through April 10th off.

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.
