You can report this absence in any of the following ways:
Our Attendance Rate Goal is 96.02% for the 2015-2016 school year. We started off strong in our first month of school with a rate of 98.04%, but as of 12/3/15, we have dropped to a considerably lower rate of 95.99%. Attendance is critical to student success. One day out is equivalent to approximately 2 days of lost instruction. Keep your children at home if they are truly ill, otherwise, please make your best effort to get your children to school on time, every day!
No School: Monday, 1/18 (MLK, Jr. Holiday) or Friday, 1/22 (Teacher In-Service Day)

It's hard to believe we are already entering the 3rd week of January! We wrapped up 2015 with Parent-Teacher Conferences and some wonderful student performances. Special thanks to Mrs. Q and Mrs. Ashford for coordinating the Winter vocal and instrumental concerts, and Mr. Thiesen for helping with the sound. Thank you also to all of the families for coming out for the shows!
We have had a busy start to 2016. On the 12th, Soul Shoppe was here for the "I've Got Your Back" Workshops, where students learned to be allies for each other when they see bullying taking place. On the 15th, we held Street Smarts assemblies to remind students to follow safety laws while on their bikes/scooters/skateboards. Our Fish Friend Club has started up, with students helping with litter removal around campus, with the support of Ms. Bradley and Mrs. Bushnell. Our Student Council is also busy preparing for a community service project, raising money for cancer research through Pennies for Patients. More information coming soon!
This month, students will be taking the 2nd i-Ready Diagnostic Test in Reading (1st-5th) and Math (K-5th). This will show us what your child has learned thus far this year, and in what areas we need to provide more instructional support. Please encourage your child to take his/her time and do his/her best on these tests so we can more accurately determine each student's strengths, and what type of support is still needed. Remember: Students can access i-Ready lessons at home by going to https://login.i-ready.com and entering their personal login information (check with your child's teacher if you need help). The lessons provided are based on your child's performance on the diagnostic test.
We are looking forward to seeing the results of everyone's hard work at our Science Fair Family Night on Tuesday, February 2nd. See you there!
