Thank you for your continued support with carpool. As long as our technology is working accurately, we get better each day. Just a couple of reminders for the week:

  • Please cross 400 South where the crossing guards are stationed at the crosswalks. We have had a couple of friends running across our carpool lanes and across the street to get into their parent’s waiting car. We want everyone to be safe.

  • Our staff in front of the school is putting numbers into the system to let your child know it is time to head to outside. Thank you for slowing down to ensure they have your number. They will usually give a thumbs up to let you know it is entered. If the number isn’t entered, the scholars will be waiting until they see it.

First Weeks

Thank you for a great first couple weeks of school! It has been so great getting to know your scholars. They are so fun and so social. I love that they are all such great friends so early on in the year. We have had the ability to do so many fun things because of this. We have really started to get into the swing of things. Reading groups and math groups have gotten going. If you are unsure who your scholars math or reading teacher please let me know and I will get you that information. If I am your scholars reading or math teacher (or both) you can find their lesson and homework information located under the homework tab here on this website. Please help your scholar stay on top of their homework throughout the year so they don't fall behind. 

Field Trip

We also have a field trip coming up next month. We will be heading to Hogle Zoo! This is such a fun field trip for us. The Zoo likes us to come with lots of volunteers to make sure that all of the kids are being watched closely as they are enjoying the animals. If this is something you are interested in helping with it will be on Oct. 11 and you will need to drive yourself and your scholar up to the zoo. Please let me know if you could be a volunteer and I will put you down for this. They ask for no extra kids to be brought and you will not have to pay for your admission into the Zoo. 

Clubs have started. If you want your scholar in a club you need to fill out the club applications found online or in the office. I am hosting a homework club on Wednesdays in my classroom. This is only for lower grades. This is available for scholars in lower grades to stay after school and get help on homework or use the computers to complete computer assignments. If you are interested in this club fill out the application in the front office.
