  • Attendance Awareness Month

    The month of September is recognized as Attendance Awareness Month. Chronic absenteeism can contribute to lower test scores and even retention. Here are some things families can do at home to help students.

    • Find out the school start time and set reminders to ensure your student is on time
    • Build regular routines for bedtime and morning
    • Talk about the importance of regular attendance and about how your child feels about school
    • Don't permit missing school unless yourchild is truly sick. Use a thermometer to check for a fever. Remember that stomach aches and headaches may be signs of anxiety
    • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session
    • Keep a chart or review the parent portal student attendance. At the end of the week, talk with your student about what you see
    • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Ask a family member, neighbor, or another parent for help
    • Seek support from school staff or community groups to help with transportation, health problems, or resources

  • Garden Help

    Could you spare some time this week to help us get our garden ready for fall planting? It is CRAZY overrun with weeds!!

    We need some parents who can come up during the school day and clear it out. Click here to sign up:

    When you arrive, sign in at the front desk, but then you will be on your own, as our staff members are teaching during the day. Bring your tools, gloves, and water. If you need guidance, ask to see Mrs. Connor.
