2017 - 2018 School Year

The first day of school for the 2017-2018 school year is Tuesday, August 15, 2017! Here are some recommendations to help students have a smoother transition between being on vacation and coming back to school: 1) Keep students on a daily schedule 2) Have a reasonable bedtime and wake up time 3) Allot time for daily reading 4) Engage in daily physical activity 5) Eat healthy meals 6) Enjoy educational activities such as visiting museums and libraries Enjoy the rest of your summer break, and see you soon!

School Attendance

Our goal is that every student be in school at least 96% of the year. This means no student should miss school more than 7 days throughout the entire school year.  School attendance is very important!  There is a strong correlation between students with good attendance and students who are academically successful.  Students with good attendance tend to have higher high school graduation rates and tend to achieve higher levels of schooling.  So, please bring your child to school every day and on time.


School starts at 8:06 a.m., so in order to be considered on time students have to be in class by 8:06 a.m.  Please make sure your child arrives at school no later than 8:00 a.m. so they have enough time to make it to class by 8:06 a.m.  Thank you for all your help and support in making sure your child maximizes his/her learning potential.
