Much To be Thankful for This Season!

GREAT Grizzlies...

Go Above and Beyond
Are Ready to Learn
Show Empathy for Others
Strive for High Academic Achievement
Are Team players!

Our next GREAT Grizzly Assembly will be held Friday, December 16th! We will recognize students who exemplify "Teamwork"

Every Monday will be a minimum day and school will be dismissed at 1:15 p.m. Regular dismissal time, Tuesday through Friday, is 2:45 p.m.

Drop-off Procedures and Times -- students should arrive at school no earlier than 7:45 a.m. Each morning at 7:45 a.m. we will open the gate north of the office building. At 8:13 a.m. when the school bell rings, students should find their classroom number painted on the hard court concrete and wait there until their teacher arrives.

Student Safety during Drop-off and Pick-up – Safety is always our first concern and we MUST work together to ensure safe passage. The yellow curb immediately in front of the school is the ONLY place students may exit your vehicle. Continue to move forward along the yellow curb until the line of cars has come to a complete stop before allowing your child to exit or enter your car.

Please allow for some extra time and bring your patience during this typically high traffic, and high student density time. NOTE – the bus turn around will be blocked off and is not a location for student drop-off or pick-up; however, it may be open for school events—Awards assemblies, etc.

Attendance Goal 2016-17: Strive for Fewer than Five Missed Days!

There is so much to be thankful for this season!

As we prepare to take a short break from school for Thanksgiving, we want to express our gratitude for everyone who makes it possible for as many students as possible to come to school every day, on time, ready to learn. We thank:

• Our students and families for making daily attendance a priority since they know the habit of attendance will help them do well in the classroom and eventually in a job.

• Our wonderful teachers who pour their energy into making each classroom an exciting place for exploration and knowledge, so children do not want to miss out on learning.

• Our support staff and community volunteers who provide the extra hands and attention our children need!

We appreciate each one of you so much. We look forward to seeing you after the Thanksgiving holiday. We also hope you will keep in mind that school is closed on Monday, November 21st and reopens Monday, November 28th.

We especially appreciate everyone’s efforts to avoid taking extra days off on either end of the Thanksgiving holiday week. Just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and leave your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school.
