We will begin reviewing March 18th -28th. We would appreciate your help in having your child to school on time. Promptness helps them focus on their classroom work and causes less interruptions. When they are tardy they lose academic time. Each time they lose 30 minutes or more, it accumulates. K-3 are in school 345 minutes, and 4-8 are in school 405 minutes. Just an example if they are tardy 10 days at 30 minutes it adds up and it equals to 1 day of full absence in school. We would like to thank you for all you have done in the past to help us raise our attendance levels. Upcoming events: March 27th Ham Shoot and Staff v.
