Attendance Matters!

  • Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade.
  • By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.
  • Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence.

School Wide Expectations

Be Safe

Be Respectful

Be Responsible

  • Congratulations to Ms. Do’s, Ms. Pimienta’s and Ms. Benson’s classes for earning 10 Robo class tickets!  They will receive an extra recess.
  • Congratulations to Ms. Blakely’s and Ms. Demchuck’s classes for earning 20 Robo class tickets!  They will receive a popsicle party.
  • Congratulations to Ms. Romaneli’s, Ms. Bromley’s, Ms. Demchuk’s, and Ms. Barrett’s classes for have 100% perfect attendance all week!

Extended Learning Opportunities (LEAD)

After school clubs start this week!  If your child was selected, you should have received information from Ms. Rawman.  Please be patient as we work through the bumps of creating a brand new afterschool program.

If your child is in a LEAD club, have them go to the kindergarten area after school on the day of their club. Here they will have a school provided snack while they wait to be picked up by their teacher at 3pm. Remember to please fill out the Release to Participate form in order for your child to participate. I have provided the link below.


General Reminders/Updates

  • Ms. Cardenas and I enjoy being on the blacktop each morning so that we can interact with students.  We ask that parents continue to follow the posted signs when dropping students off in the morning.  Pull all the way forward so that multiple cars can all drop off and traffic can stay moving.
  • One way to have positive interactions about school with your child is to ask them to tell you about 2-3 great things that happened at school.  Ask open ended questions so that your child has to say more than “yes” or “no”.  Think positive!
  • Last day to purchase Boo Grams for $1 will be Monday.  Boo Grams will be delivered on Oct 31.
