Meet your Principal
December 2017 Principal Letter
Thanks to all of you that attended parent/teacher conferences in November! It is an important time to come together as a team to talk about your student’s progress! We appreciate the time you took out of your busy day! Overall we had 95% attendance by all of you! That’s fantastic!
As we enter this busy holiday season we hope to see all 3rd-5th grade parents and guests at one of the two winter concerts that will be taking place on December 12 @ 2:15 and 7:00. We also need your help to ensure that your 3-5 grade student is able to get to the evening concert so they can participate!
On another note, our site base team has met and identified a concern that we need your help with! To ensure your child’s safety before and after school each day, we need to have you use the blacktop area (playground during the day), for drop off and pick up. Our biggest concern is for students being dropped off or picked up in the parking lot by the office. This is NOT a safe area for pick-up or drop-off. Most of you do use the blacktop and we thank you for this!! For your convenience, I have included page 1 from our handbook. If you have any questions, please feel free to call. Remember, your child’s safety is our primary concern.
Student Pickup/Dropoff (Handbook- pg. 1)
For safety reasons, it is critical that students be dropped off and picked up only in the designated area next to the gym before and after school. If you are dropping off your student late or picking them up early, please use the parking lot near the office.
I’d also like to let you know about some great new things that will be happening sometime in January so be watching for more information.
