Due to the hazardous conditions and the school being closed, our Friendship Celebrations and the PTA Valentine Dance Party that were scheduled for Friday were cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you.
Kindergarten 1819… If you have a child who will be five (5) years old on or before September 1, 2018, he or she is eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the 2018-19 school year. Please see link below for important information about enrollment.
Spring Conferences… Spring parent-teacher conferences will be on March 1. Staff will be contacting parents who they would like to meet with and discuss their student’s progress. Parents will use the PowerPTC online system to set up a conference. This is the new system launched last fall for scheduling parent-teacher conferences. The district asked PowerPTC to incorporate parent feedback to improve the system and make it more user friendly. In order to incorporate the changes, PowerPTC had to remove previous parent accounts before launching the revised version. Therefore, parents who are contacted by their teacher and asked to participate in the March 1 conference will need to set up a new PowerPTC account. You will receive information on setting up your account after your teacher contacts you.
