Feb.5-9 is National School Counseling Week


Goals, similar to dreams, are things that you aspire to do. You can
have a goal to get a certain grade in your most challenging class. You
can have a goal to create a time management plan for tackling your
homework after school. You can even have a goal to wake up a bit
earlier each day so you won’t rush in the mornings before school.
Goals are things you want to set your mind to accomplish. Do you
need help with setting your personal goals? We are here, so stop by and
see us.
Stay focused. Be kind. Be great!

Attending for Success!

Parents, please remember that our school day starts at 7:50 a.m.

Students arriving after that time are considered tardy.

Did you know….?

Research shows that students who are chronically absent in K & 1st grade are less likely to be able to read proficiently by 3rd grade.

Students who are late to class by just 10 minutes every day end up missing more than 30 total hours of class.

Excused and unexcused absences both add up to lost class time.

How can I, a parent, help?

Know the bus schedule pick-up time and aim to be there 5-10 min earlier.

Have clothes and school bag ready the night before.

Set up a good example by modeling regular routines. This may include a time for completing homework, having dinner, bedtime and morning routines.

Try to schedule medical visits after school.

Plan family trips and vacations during school breaks.
