Principal's Message

Fall has arrived, and our mornings are very chilly.  Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather, so they are ready to be outside for recess.  Our lost and found table is getting very full.  Please encourage your child to look for any missing items on the table by the library.
We are looking forward to our upcoming family conferences.  This is an opportunity to discuss your child's progress with the teacher, and share all of the great things about your kiddo that you want the teacher to know.  Don't forget to stop by the gym and music room to hear how your child is doing in those areas as well. 
Please also take a moment to fill out our satisfaction surveys.  Teachers will have a flyer for you during conferences explaining the process, and how to access the survey.  Our computer lab will be open during conferences, so feel free to stop by and take the survey while you are in the building.  We really appreciate the feedback to help us grow.
Our Veteran's Day assembly will be on November 7th, and there will be no school on November 11th in observance of Veteran's Day.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I can be reached at 573-7820.
See you for conferences!
