Thank you to those parents who attended our Parents & Pastries/ELAC meeting on Friday. If you were not able to attend, please take a moment to give your input regarding parent meeting topics by taking this brief survey. Here is the Spanish version. Survey closes on 10/26/18.

Our attendance rate last week was 96.7%. This is too low! Our goal is 98%. We can do it!

Remember, coming to school on every day on time is the first smart choice your child makes in their academic career. Please be a part of your child’s success by bringing them to school early. They can eat breakfast at school starting at 7:15.  School begins at 7:45 am. Students are required to be lined up on the blacktop when the bell rings at 7:45, or they are marked tardy.
