CAR RIDERS: If your child is a car rider, he or she MUST be in the building no earlier than 7:35 a.m. and no later than 7:53 a.m. Homeroom begins at 8:00 a.m. sharp. Students who are tardy will be given consequences for being late to school. Please adjust your morning schedule accordingly to ensure your child is on time! Also, school ends at 3:00 p.m. Make sure that you are here to pick your child up on time. If any of these requirements causes a problem, remember that the school district provides bus transportation for all students. If your child is attempting to enter the building after 8:00 a.m., both the child and a parent must enter the front office. The parent of a child who is tardy MUST sign the child in to school.

6th graders Bring Story to Life.
The6th graders read the novel, Walk Two Moons. Chapter 16 is about a tree that the main character calls the signing tree. It's called the singing tree because there is a bird in the tree that sings every morning, but the bird is never found. Therefore, making the tree seem like it's singing to the main character. To help bring the story to life, Ms. Gadwaw’s 6th grade students along with Ms. Simpson’s English students created a 3-D mural of the signing tree and the story’s characters.
