Parents/Guardians: Remember to schedule your conference with your student's teacher. Conferences will be held between December 5-16th. During these two weeks, 1st-5th grade students will be dismissed at 1:00pm every day. Please be sure to mark your calendars, and make plans for pick-up.


Dear Wildcat Community, 

We are into the holiday season, and parent-teacher conferences are on the horizon. It is a good time to reflect on our progress thus far, and how we can continue to improve outcomes for our students. We have set some goals for student improvement, and teachers are working to provide targeted instruction to help our students to reach these goals.

To give back during this season, we have two upcoming community service projects: The Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser was kicked off just before Thanksgiving Break. Your student should have brought home a fundraising envelope with instructions for collecting donations to support the work of the American Heart Association. We will have a culminating jumping event the week before Winter Break. We are also holding a Food Drive, collecting non-perishable food items throughout the month to support MDUSD’s food pantry at CHS, which provides food to needy families within out district. Donations can be dropped off in the boxes outside of the office.

Throughout the month of December, we will also be hosting a school-wide Kindness Challenge. The goal of this challenge is to encourage kindness, generosity, and giving throughout our school and community as a whole. The top 3 classes with the most "acts of kindness" will earn an extra recess!

We would like to extend our thanks once again to Amanda Viano. Through her and her team’s efforts, our annual Fun Run fundraiser raised at least $7467 in support of student programs and services. 

Finally, be sure to mark your calendars for the Conference Weeks schedule: from December 5th-16th, our 1st-5th grade students will be dismissed at 1:00 every day. Please plan accordingly.

Happy Holidays!

Nancy Klinkner, Principal
