We are off and running for the 2016-2017 school year. We have had a great start to the year! Students and staff are energized and getting quickly back into the flow. I wanted to remind you of a few changes and let you know of a few new opportunities for our students.
Reminder: We only have 9 early releases this school year. They fall on the 1st Wednesday of each month from here on out (purple days on calendar). That release time will be 2:20 pm for all grades. Buses will run at this time.
Bus Dismissal for Elementary: Over the summer a new sidewalk has been put in connecting the west end of the building that we are utilizing to exit our elementary bus students to the bus pick up lane. This is to help with the congestion in front of our building. If your child is going to be picked up instead of riding the bus you will want to let us know prior to school getting out so we can have them out front at dismissal.
After-school Homework/Academic Club: We are pleased to be offering an after-school homework club for students who could use some extra help and structured time to complete assignments. This will be starting very soon in September. We are opening this club to 4th-8th graders to begin with and will determine if we can offer to other grade levels depending on enrollment. This is a free program taking place on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights from 3:45-5:15. More information will be coming out shortly on this program with sign-ups to follow.
