Breakfast with Books:  Each grade will get a box of donuts to hand out to kids that want to stay in the classroom and read.

Teacher Rep Report: Given by Mrs. Cummings. Breakfast and the Woot Woot Wagon were great! She is going to have the teachers help promote the fun run in their classrooms.

Principal Report:  

  • Back to School Night went great!  
  • The Marquee is up and running.
  • Safety is her focus this year.  The front door will be the only door unlocked and you need to be buzzed in to get in the second set of doors.  Parents need to go out the front doors when leaving.  She will be checking the other doors 3 times a day to make sure they are locked.  If a parent /volunteer goes by and sees an outside door not closed, please close it and make sure it locks.
  • STEAM Night is the End of April.
