  • Beginning of the Year Documents – Please remember to go to the SchoolWise parent portal on our website to complete your beginning of the year documents.  We currently have only 70% of our student documents completed.  This information is vital, especially your child’s emergency contact information.  Please have everything completed this week.  Since permission for use of the library, computer lab and field trips is included in the portal documents, we will not be able to allow students to participate in these programs beginning Monday, September 18th, if the portal documents have not been completed.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Grant in the office.

To Ponder…

Have a big enough heart to love unconditionally, and a broad enough mind to embrace the differences that make each of us unique.
