Happy New Year!


 January is a great time to reflect on the areas in our lives where we felt successful during the past year. It is also a time to consider how to make changes in areas where we would like to improve. Here are some tips to help students start the New Year off on a positive note.

·         Get plenty of sleep – Scientists have found that students who do not get enough sleep have difficulty paying attention in class an do not do as well in school.

·         Eat healthy – Eat more fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Limit sodas and snack foods.

·         Exercise your body and mind daily.

·         Follow the Golden Rule – Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

·         Time + Effort = Achievement – Take time to carefully complete all assignments at school and home.

·         Read, read, read – Success in school depends, in large part, on a student’s ability to read and understand what they have read. Read for information, read for fun, and read to someone in your family…just read!

·         Attend school regularly and on time.

·         Write out your goals and plan for success. The plan may include getting better grades, making new friends, studying harder, staying out of trouble, etc.


 We have a few reminders heading into 2015

Inclement weather: It is that time of year again, the weather is forever changing. Listen to your radio stations and the television for late starts, delayed starts, and early dismissals. The district calls out to every parent( to the numbers that we had on the registration cards) informing of changes. If your telephone number has changed please update so that you will get the automated messages. We cannot call you if we do not have current, working numbers in the computers.

Recess: Please prepare your child with proper winter clothing daily. Again, we participate in outdoor RECESS daily(as long as the temperature is not excessively cold and it is not raining).

Breakfast: We begin serving at 7:35. Students may enter the cafeteria for breakfast between 7:35 and 7:55. We have two lines that move swiftly.

Dismissal: We ask that students are picked up for early dismissal before 2:25 p.m. After that time, please remain in your cars as teachers dismiss in an orderly fashion.

 As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please send a note or call the school.
