Principal's Message

Welcome 2020!
I hope you and your children enjoyed family time together over winter break.  It was a good time to recharge, and come back ready to work and learn.  
January is also a good time for goal setting.  Helping your children set meaningful and relevant goals will give them a sense of great accomplishment when they reach those goals.  The goals can be a strong motivator for children (and adults alike) as well.  Reading 20 minutes a night would be a good academic goal to start with, as the benefits of reading are very strong.  Goal setting can be a wonderful family event to start off the new year.  
Attendance is incredibly important to us.  We want our students to be at school each and every day.  However, if your children are extremely ill (high fever, vomiting, etc.), please keep them at home so they can fully recover.
Just a reminder, no school on Monday, January 20 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I can be reached at 573-7820.
Looking forward to seeing you in the new year!
Tami Scrivner

Lettuce Recall

Food Safety Alert

CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating a multistate outbreak of E.coli infections linked to romaine lettuce harvested from the Salinas, California growing region. CDC is advising that consumers not eat any romaine lettuce harvested from the Salinas, CA growing region. While we do not serve romaine lettuce in East Valley, we do serve other varieties of lettuce grown in this region. As a precautionary measure, we have disposed of all lettuce and will not be serving any until after Thanksgiving break. When we return next week we will resume serving our students lettuce grown from another region not linked to this outbreak.
