We are in the second month of our second semester. We have had a lot of things happen. We had 111 students make the second quarter Principal's Gold List and Honor Roll. We also had well over 100 students achieve perfect attendance during the second quarter. We are very proud of our students and these accomplishments. We are in the process of preparing for the AIMS test that will be taking place in April.
So we ask that you continue to help get your students to school on time and ready to work. Like always, you are more than welcome to come and visit and take part in your child's education.
Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6
There will be no school on Monday, February 17 for President's Day.
Parking lot Closed
The front parking lot will be closed to student drop off or pick up beginning on Monday, January 13. The gates will be closed from 7:40-8:00 and again from 1:40-2:00. The purpose of this closing is to keep your children safe during drop off and pick up. Parents are reminded that parent drop off is in the East parking lot. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of your child is very important to us.
Along with this, the gates on the north parking lot, parallel to 20th street will be closed when the 8:00 bell rings. We are doing our best to get as many of you in before the bell rings, but we do have to close it when the bell rings. One thing that can help is if you can bring your students a few minutes earlier than you usually do, this will make the biggest difference in lowering the amount of traffic at the times the bell rings.
Our student council is selling candy grams for Valentines. The price of these are $1.00. They can be purchased through any student council member or through Mrs. Archer. The students need to know the name of the student and the name of the teacher so this can be put on the note. These sales will run through Wednesday, February 12.
Valentine's Day and Gifts
Parents, this Friday is Valentine's Day and with it comes the delivery of candies, stuffed animals, balloons, and other cute items you send to your children. When you are planning on bringing something to your child please keep in mind the size of the gifts in comparison to the size of your child. I have seen many children struggle with the size or amount of gifts they receive as they are walking home. Please also remember that balloons are not allowed on the bus as they distract the driver's view. Any gifts brought to school will be kept in the office and delivered during the last part of the day. Thank you, have a great Valentine's Day and remember there is no school on Monday for President's Day.
