Principal's Message
The month of September has flown by with everyone settling back into our school routines. It was great to see many parents and guardians attending our open house this month. Also, I know the teachers have been communicated with notes and classroom newsletters. Each classroom teacher has a method of sending information back and forth from home to school. A reminder please, if you have notes about different busing plans or questions for the teacher, make sure any communication goes in the student's back and forth bag. In regard to after school plans, please try to send and unless absolutely necessary, try to avoid calling throughout the day, especially after noon, with a change for dismissal. When possible, make plans with your child ahead of time, so we are not left scrambling at the end of day, to try to make an alternate plan. When this happens, mistakes could get made regarding the child's end of day destination. This applies to the After School Program as well. Please continue to check your child's communication bags or folders at home and use them to communicate to us here at school. Anytime you have questions, please send your child's teacher a note or call us at school. Thank you for your support.
