FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DEN

Dear Parents,

Spring is in the air, and the fourth quarter is off to a great start! It has been a wonder filled year so far, and we look forward to a strong finish! We have several events coming up, so please be sure to check our webpage. Please don’t ever hesitate to let me know if I can support you in your child’s learning.

As we move into April and the final quarter of the 2017-2018 school year, I ask that you make every effort to stress to your children the importance of listening to the bus drivers and following the rules and regulations of riding the bus. We are also experiencing severe behaviors on the buses. We need your assistance with this matter. Please speak with your child about the importance of staying seated, not yelling, keeping their hands to themselves, horse playing and sitting in their assigned seats. The number of referrals has really increased over the past month and students are being suspended from the bus. Please remind the students that riding the bus is a privilege and there is no law that states that a student must ride a bus to and from school.

We are now entering testing season and please assure that your child is prepared for class every day. Your child’s overall academic success demands that they get the proper amount of rest and sleep every night, complete their homework assignments, stay focused and pay attention in class, follow teacher directions and obey school rules and regulations.

Again, thank you for your continued support as we prepare for up-coming tests and school events.

Remember: Students+Parents+Teachers=SUCCESS!!!

Mrs. Jennifer M. Howard
