    Happy New School Year!  It was great to have all the students and staff back in the building today. There were lots of smiling faces and the students navigated the building as if it was the middle of the school year.  I am very proud of all of them.  We are looking forward to a great year together. I want to send a special shout out to our custodial staff and grounds crews.  The building is in great shape and looks the best I have seen it in 3 years.  I also want to thank our teachers for the time and effort that they put in, making their rooms great learning environments for students.

    Back-To-School Night
    Back to school

    This year our back-to-school night is scheduled for August 25th, starting at 6:30 pm and concluding at 8 pm. The schedule for the evening is as follows:
     
    6:30 pm - 1st Presentation - Teachers in their classroom
    7:00 pm - Welcome Back - Mr. Johnson in the gym
    7:30 pm - 2nd Presentation - Teachers in their classroom
     
    Parking will be available in numerous locations.  Please utilize all our parking spaces, the circle drive area, the blacktop by the playground, the grassy area East of the building and the property off of Miller Road.  The last location mentioned can be found by turning East onto  Miller Road from 59.  It is the first driveway on your left.  We will place signage out there to identify the driveway.  I have secured lighting so that everyone will be able to see on their way out.  There is a gate in the fence in between the playgrounds for you to walk through and all doors will be open to enter the building.  Make sure that you do not block any vehicles in when you are parking.  If you are willing to help direct traffic and point cars in the right direction please let me know. 

    Early Release
    Every Wednesday at 3:10 PM
    Every Wednesday school gets out at 3:10 PM. This Wednesday, August 24th is the first early release day.  Please make sure that you plan accordingly as all students will be home early that day and every Wednesday there after.

    All School Picture (Friday)
    Friday, August 26th we will be taking an all-school picture after lunch.  Please have your students wear our school colors for the picture.  If all our students wear Red, Black and White, it will make the picture stand-out as we are on the blacktop and playground.
