Principal's Message

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons!

I wanted to correct the information shared at the Open House of our test results. Our scores were given us in error. Here are our real scores: Reading is 45%, Math is 34% and our Science was 48%. October has so many things happening! Please make sure you schedule your parent teacher conference with your child’s teacher. From October 23 to October 31, our school will end at 12:30 pm, so please pick up your child on time or make arrangements to have them picked up on time. A+ will also start at 12:30.

Don’t forget that Fall Break will be from October 9th to the 13th. Students should not come to school this week. Enjoy some family time, read to your child or have them read to you for at least 15 to 20 minutes every day. This is the one thing you can do at home that will ensure your child’s success in school.

Our school staff is continuing our training for the Leader in Me program. We are learning how everyone can be a leader. We want to empower our students to be able to make strong choices that will help them to succeed. We will be using strategies from this FranklinCovey program to help build student leadership.

I want to update you about our classrooms without air conditioning and our efforts to create optimal learning environments for our children. We have a project going to bid for an electrical upgrade. This is to increase power to Buildings H, I, and J. Once we get that project done, then we will have enough power to install air conditioning to our classrooms. Until we do get the air conditioning, you can also take steps by dressing your child in cooler clothing. We will remind them to drink water and stay hydrated as well. Thank you for your patience as we continue to advocate to completely air condition our school to mitigate dust and noise from the Rail that is coming our way.

Sincerely, Laura Vines Principal
