Welcome Back Everyone

August 29, 2014elem082514

This is my fifteenth year as principal and the first day of school never loses its magic for me. Amid all the preparation and administration, the real reason for school shows up on the first day when students pour into the halls eager to meet new teachers and friends. I love the first day when children with new clothes and backpacks enter onto the freshly waxed floors. My hope is that we can all remember the excitement of this first day and the energy continues for the entire school year.

I would like to remind everyone that we have adult supervision on the playground starting at 7:30. All students are to go out to the playground unless they have made special arrangements with their teacher. Breakfast is called at 7:45. If you arrive before 8:00 please have your child go outside. Teachers are busy getting their classes ready for the day.

If your child arrives after 8:00, please stop in the office and sign him/her in on the clipboard by the door. Angel will give your child a late slip to bring to class.

We start calling dismissal between 2:50 and 2:55. If you need your child earlier than that, please let Angel know and she will call down to your child's teacher. Dismissal is a very busy time for teachers and they need their attention on how all the children are getting home. Thank you for your cooperation!!

Don't forget early release is 1:45 on Thursdays!!

Please know that your child's teacher is your first line of communication if you have concerns and my door is always open. Here's to a great year!!
