Principal's Weekly Message
Dear Parents and Community Members,
Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedules to meet your child’s teacher. We appreciate the input you provide and your partnership in ensuring the success of your child’s academic journey. For those who were not able to come to parent conferences, please know that the teachers will make time to meet with you. Simply call or email to set the appointment.
On another note, yesterday, we participated in the Great American Shakeout. We did an earthquake drill and students did the traditional DROP, COVER and HOLD ON. This was followed by having an assembly at the field, doing roll call, and activating our Search and Rescue Team, to account for all the students in school. The children participated fully and did an excellent job of listening and following directions. Next month, we will have extended safety training where all the teams will be activated: Assembly, Search and Rescue, First Aid, Psychological, Request Gate and Reunion Gate. We will have a select number of students who will “act the part” of hiding and/or being physically injured. Parents will also be involved in the training exercise by way of requesting to pick up their children. This will give our teams the opportunity to practice what needs to be done during an emergency. We will keep you posted as the training nears.
Last but not least, I am looking forward to seeing many of you at our annual Fall Ball tomorrow from 5-9pm. It promises to be a wonderful event.
On Election Day, students will go with their class to vote in the office. Voting stations will be set up and students will vote for ONE candidate and anonymously place their ballet in the voting box. Students will get an “I Voted” sticker. All votes will be tallied and announced at the end of the day.
We highly encourage you to open up conversation of why it is important to vote and share with your children.
Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week:
We will be participating in “National Red Ribbon Week” which happens annually during the last week in October. This year, we will recognize Red Ribbon Week the week of Oct. 24th. Our Red Ribbon Assembly will be held on 10/27 and all students are encouraged to wear red! The fire fighters from Engine 60 will be our special guests at the assembly.
Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program reaching millions of Americans during the last week in October every year. Our campus will also focus on making healthy choices and being safe and information presented is age appropriate. By wearing red ribbons and participating in community anti-drug events, young people across the United States pledge to live a drug-free life.
Please encourage your child to wear the following on our dress theme days during that week:
10/25: “Boots Day” Give Drugs the Boot!
10/26: “Crazy Sock Day” Sock it to Drugs!
10/27: “Wear Red” Red Ribbon Assembly

2016-2017 Early Release Day Calendar
Here is a complete list of Early Release Days for 2016-2017. It is strongly recommended families take advantage of early release days to schedule doctor and dental appointments or make appointments during intersession breaks. Thank you for your consideration as time in the classroom with the teacher and peers is critical to your child's success at school.
