What a fabulous start to a new school year! We have lots of new kids and the energy on campus is remarkable! The first Friday of school we had a short assembly to kick off the New Year as we talked about setting personal goals. Our staff surprised our kids with a short dance routine which seemed to be well-received (:
Getting children into a routine at the beginning of the New Year is a challenge but boy can it pay huge dividends in the long run. First, we would like to mention safety…We have grown a little in student population and with that comes more traffic. The front of the school and the west parking lot are organized for student drop off. We ask you to use caution when dropping off children and leave early in an effort to help us with the first few weeks of getting our morning routines established.
The drops off zones are painted yellow and we are asking parents to refrain from dropping off in the red zones. We can handle up to nearly 15 cars if everyone cooperates and pulls all the way forward we can eliminate traffic congestion out onto Westar Drive. We really do manage to move a lot of vehicles through in a short amount of time but following the lead of our staff in the lot is extremely helpful!
Kindergarteners leave school 10 minutes earlier than all other grades and we want to get them loaded into their vehicles quickly as to help with dismissal of first grade through eighth graders. As a reminder, dismissal for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday is 2:40 and Wednesday is 1:40. The first bell in the morning rings at 7:35 with the pledge of allegiance beginning at 7:40!!
