Update Student Phone Numbers

It is extremely important that we have working telephone numbers for our parents and guardians. We have noticed numerous phone numbers that are non-working numbers or do not allow us to leave a message. We need to be able to contact you at all times during the school day when your children are present. It is your responsibility to update and inform the school of changes in phone numbers and addresses. Please let us know as soon as possible when you have a change. Thank you so much for your help!

Character Trait

Our character trait for the month of August and September is responsibility. Children need to learn many things as they grow up. At school, we teach them to think, read, write, and solve problems; learn about people, places, and nature. Children also need to learn how to act appropriately. How you act can be just as important as what you know. Responsibility involves taking care of oneself, helping others, and doing our jobs as expected. Here are some things you can do to help your children at home.

  • Talk about everyday examples of responsibility you see family members or others in the community doing. Keep up with homework, play safely on the playground equipment, or fulfilling an obligation when others are having fun is a sign of responsibility.
  • Read The Book of Virtues by William J. Bennett or Horton Hatches an Egg by Dr. Seuss. These are great books to help children learn more about responsibility.

Acceptable Forms of Communication

Parents and guardians, it is very important that all forms of communication for bus, pick-up, and car tag changes be completed by putting a note in the plastic folder or agenda prior to the start of the school day. Do not e-mail, fax, or Dojo the teacher with any transportation changes. Internet is not a guarantee, and teachers do not always have access to e-mail or the fax machine during their instructional time. Always communicate a dismissal change through the front office or by leaving a message upon pushing the correct prompt for the specific change. Thank you for helping us ensure the safety of our students!
