From the Principal’s Desk

Happy December!

The school year is just cruising right along, today marks the mid term for 2nd quarter if you can believe that! A reminder that we will not be printing out or sending mid term reports home unless requested by parents/guardians. With access to grades online through PowerSchool we are encouraging parents to stay up-to-date through that avenue. If you have not created your personal log in, please take a moment to do so through this link.

Parents your help is requested in making sure our students are safe and supervised during events at school. We encourage our student body to support one another and attend games and activities. When this happens we ask that our handbook be followed in that procedure, especially for games right after school. Students in grades 5-8 who wait after school for games must have written parental permission and must make arrangements for their supervision with staff members of grades 5-8. Students who do not have parental permission and who have not made supervision arrangements or whose behavior is not in compliance with school rules will be asked to go home. Students in grades k-4 need parental supervision to attend or stay after school for games. We do not have supervision for these students and will not allow older siblings to watch and be responsible for these students. Thank you for your help in this matter!

It is a busy month with performances, games and activities happening. I’ve attached a list of several events happening the rest of this month below. * For concerts this month please feel free to use our East Entrance (Activities) for additional parking as the front will become full very quickly – the east doors will be open approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the concerts. Students will be available to sign-out after their concerts in their classrooms if parents would like to pick them up at that time (check out sheets will be in the classroom instead of the office). Students will only be allowed to leave with a parent/guardian unless written permission is granted prior to performance.
