Picture Retake Day

Picture Retake Day is THIS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH, at 1:00 pm.   Retakes are for students who were absent on the original Picture Day, or whose pictures did not turn out well.  Order forms are available in the school office, if needed, but are not required for students who already had their pictures taken.  Those students should bring their original picture packet with them on Retake Day.   

PLEASE NOTE: AM KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS who need their picture taken/retaken must bring their child to the school at 1:00.

Report Cards coming home TODAY!

All students in grades 1-6 will be bringing home their first marking period report card today. Please note that we are not utilizing yellow report card envelopes this year so there is nothing to sign and return to the school. Report cards will be uploaded to sapphire parent portal at the end of the day.

Please note that your child ONLY participated in two specials during the first marking period, so you will only have two special area grades and the other specials are blank.

Bike Helmet Safety Event

Wear a bike helmet every time you ride, even if you’re going for a short ride. And follow these rules:

  • Make sure your bike helmet fits you well.
  • Always wear your helmet the right way so it will protect you: Make sure it covers your forehead and don’t let it tip back. Always fasten the straps.
  • Don’t wear a hat under your helmet.
  • Take care of your helmet and don’t throw it around. If it’s damaged, it won’t protect you as well when you need it.
  • Get a new helmet if you fall while you’re on your bike and hit your head.
  • Put reflective stickers on your helmet so drivers can see you better.
