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!

What You Say
Any day can be a nice day
Depending on what you say
Or it can be a pain
But that goes for anyday
Say something nice
Say something mean
It can change the way
About you, about themselves
Or about someone else
Say something nice
Say something right
Be an ally!

Looking Ahead to 2016-2017…
Change in Bell Schedule: In an effort to increase the flexibility in our schedule for intervention/enrichment opportunities, and to provide a bell schedule more in line with the rest of the school district, we have decided to make minor adjustments to our bell schedule. Please note the new end times (Note: There are no changes to the Kindergarten bell schedule):
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday – 7:45am-2:20pm / Wednesdays – 7:45am-1:00pm
School Site Council – Parent/community representatives are still needed. The SSC meets for about an hour each month to review/revise the school’s plan for student achievement, and make decisions regarding the allocation of our school site funds. If you have an opinion and interest in helping make policy and program decisions, and monitor our spending plan, with a minimal time commitment, this is the committee for you! Please call/email office staff to indicate your interest in serving on this vital team.
HELP WANTED! We are eager to increase our supervision in the following areas: Parking Lots, Drop-Off/Pick-Up Zones, Playground, Cafeteria. Paid Noon Supervision positions are available, however, volunteers are needed as well. If you are willing to serve our school community, please contact the office. Special thanks to Sarah Mollwitz and Kathy Schleyer, who have consistently volunteered their time to insure student safety during drop-off and pick-up throughout the year!
