Each week we will post the locations of our students. Please contact the office for help in finding the appropriate ceremony for your child. 


  • Focus on Dress Code (same process applies to use of Cell Phones or Tardies after break or lunch)
  • Currently between 5-7 students are required to change a day - please donate your gently used clothes to the office for students to change into 
    • Staff has had valuable conversations with students to be clear about dress code expectations. Teachers will review the dress code & our policy to create clear expectations:
      • 1st time out of dress code = warning (recorded in the office)
      • 2nd time out of dress code = 2nd warning (recorded in office & email home to parents with dress code and notice that 3rd time will result in loss of next school social activity *free dress day, school dance)
      • 3rd time = loss of school activity
        • continued infractions = any of the following: parent conference, behavior contract, etc. 
  • Only 10 weeks left in the semester - 4 days before spring break. Take advantage of office hours before your break. 
  • Spring Break begins Friday, April 14 through the next Friday, April 21... and then there are only 8 weeks left! Promotion takes place on the last day of school, June 15 after school gets out.
