halloweenOur Halloween party and parade will be held on Thursday, October 29.  Classroom parties will be held from 2:45–3:20 p.m.   Due to Covid restrictions our Halloween parade will be held outside this year.  If the weather does not cooperate we will have to cancel the parade.  Also, instead of starting the parade at 8:30 a.m. we will begin after classrooms parties are over at 3:30 p.m.  Parents and family members are invited to attend our parade. Additional information about the parade will be sent home within the next couple weeks.

We encourage family friendly, non-violent costumes.  Weapons of any kind will not be allowed.  Fake blood is discouraged as part of their costume.  This is frightening to some of our younger students.  Face paint is acceptable.  Please remember that school will be in session, so if you send your child to school in their costume it should be comfortable. 

Awards for K-2 and 3-5 students will be given for the following Halloween costumes:  Best Homemade    Creepiest    Funniest    Weirdest     Cutest     Grossest

ptcParent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, October 21, and Thursday, October 22.  Parent-teacher conferences are a very important opportunity for parents and teachers to forge partnerships in students’ education.   It is proven that children do better in school when parents are involved in their academic lives.   A parent-teacher conference is a great opportunity to:

  • start or continue ongoing conversations with your child’s teacher
  • learn how to help your kids do their best in school
  • let your child know that what goes on in school will be shared at home

You will receive a note with your child’s scheduled conference time.  If you have more than one child attending our elementary we will try to schedule their conferences back to back.  Please keep in mind that early evening conferences are the most requested time.

Conferences are scheduled every 15 minutes starting at 5:00 p.m. and going until 7:45 p.m.  Please help your child’s teacher stay on schedule by arriving on time.  If more than 15 minutes is needed, schedule additional time with the teacher at a later date.  Please help us reach our parent-teacher conference attendance goal of 100%!

leaderThe Leader in Me helps students learn how to become self-reliant, take initiative, plan ahead, set and track goals, do their homework, prioritize their time, manage their emotions, be considerate of others, express their viewpoint persuasively, resolve conflicts, find creative solutions, value differences, and live a balanced life. The process helps students develop the skills and self-confidence they need to lead their lives and succeed in school and beyond.
