Dear Parents,

Welcome back and Happy New Year!  Our mission this year has been to continue to provide a challenging, engaging environment where all students actively participate in the learning process.  This will take a joint effort between you, your child and our staff. 

The school/parent partnership is crucial to your child's success.  The school needs your most current phone number and email address to maintain communication.  If you have had changes since completing the blue emergency card at the beginning of the year, contact our Main Office to let them know.  Also, review PowerSchool on a consistent basis.  If the grades are not updated, contact the teacher to check on your child's progress.

As we start the 2nd semester, please make sure to contact your child's new teachers.  Communicating with the teachers from the start will build the relationship between school and home, and keep everyone involved during the semester. We are currently looking for a date to have a 2nd semester Open House.  When we have a date, we will post it on the school's website.   

Important information for the 2019-2020 school year:

  • Students must have an agenda/planner and STUDENT ID with them at all times.  If you haven't done so, please purchase an agenda/planner from the Main Office for $5.00.  Replacement IDs may also be purchased for $3.00. 
  • To monitor your child's progress, grades can always be checked on PowerSchool, which is available online.  If you still need a username or password, email your child's counselor and they will assist you.
  • Please discuss the dress code with your child.  This can be found online and in your child's agenda.  Dress for Success!

We hope this year will continue to be the very best for you and your child.  We thank you in advance for your support in helping our children succeed.  If you have any questions, please call me at 980-343-0860 or email me at .

Have a great rest of the school year. 

David Switzer
