Let's get READY for a new school year!!! Last year, in January, we changed from School Reach to School Messenger for our parent notification service. This is your way to receive updated information about your child's school. NOW, there is a NEW way for YOU to be able to update YOUR OWN information so YOU can control what type of notifications you receive, where you receive notifications and on what phone. Go to this link for more information:

Building Toward the Future on Today’s Successes
Attendance Awareness
Did you know?
  • Starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school?
  • Missing 10% (or about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read.
  • Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.
  • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
  • Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.
Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school - and themselves.  Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important.  Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.
