Announcements January 28

January is almost over and February is set to begin.  Our students had impressive attendance and behavior for the 3rd 6 weeks.  Our students had the highest ever attendance for the 3rd 6 weeks at 95.8% and the class with the best attendance was Ms. Windham's kindergarten class with 98% attendance!

Our discipline made significant improvements for the 3rd 6 weeks.  Disciplinary infractions dropped from the 3rd 6 weeks last year and our referrals dropped over 50% from the 2nd 6 weeks.  This improvement in behavior is because of our students' hard work, our teachers creating engaging and positve learning environments and our parents supporting the students by promoting great behavior.

Here are some upcoming events that you need to be aware of.
