A Message From Your Principal
Posted on 09/18/2017

Dear Parents,

Can you believe that Friday marks the end of the first 6 weeks of school?  I’m always amazed how quickly the school year goes by.  While Friday is only the mid-term, the teachers will still begin the process of reporting on the students’ grades.  This will be done at Parent-Teacher Conferences during the first week of October.  The staff is meeting later this week to schedule conferences, so be on the lookout for a note with your child’s conference time.  These will go home on Monday, September 25th.  Conferences will be held on Monday evening, October 2nd and during the afternoon of October 5th.

The Wildcat Prowl is later this week!  The Prowl is an exercise fundraiser that our kids participate in, as PAWS raises funds for our school.  During the Prowl, the kids go outside during their specials time (Art, Music, PE, and Library) to run or walk laps in order to earn bracelets.  The kids really enjoy this event.  Parents are welcome to come join their child at the Prowl.  Here’s our schedule:

  • 8:55 to 9:55 – 5th Grade
  • 9:55 to 10:55 – 4th Grade
  • 10:55 to 11:55 – 1st Grade
  • 12:25 to 1:25 – Kindergarten
  • 1:25 to 2:25 – 2nd Grade
  • 2:25 to 3:25 – 3rd Grade

Friday, September 22ndThe Wildcat Prowl will take place during your child’s specials classes.
