Attendance

Please keep in mind that we have a goal of 95% attendance for our school. This is the time of year that sickness begins to hit us hard. Please try to schedule appointments for after school. Remember early dismissals and tardies do count against your child’s attendance.

LEAPs Program

Please remember we will not have after school program on snow days or days that we have an early dismissal. This will include our days that we are scheduled to only attend ½ day.

 

Box Top Labels

We are still collecting box top for education food labels. Please cut them off of any boxes that you purchase and send them in to your child’s teacher. We received ten cents for every box top that we collect.

Helping Your Child

We know that each of you want your child to be academically successful. You can help your child be “the best they can be” by helping them with their homework nightly. Dedicate some time each night to helping with reading and math. Students should be reading every night for 15 – 20 minutes. They also need to be practicing math facts. This could be addition/subtraction in lower grades or time tables in 3rd – 6th. This will help your student be more academically successful. Also, be on the lookout for Snow Packets that your child’s teachers will send home for students to work on if we have a day out of school due to the weather. All grades will be sending a snow packet home.
