Daily Attendance

Regular attendance is key to the success a child has in school and directly affects academic achievement. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to establish work habits that will help them succeed in life and work.
Our Perfect Attendance Incentive Program provides opportunities for our students to be rewarded for their dedication to learning. Parents can help their children by ensuring that they do not arrive late or leave early and are present each and every day of the school year.

Parent Teacher Conferences - September 11th - 15th

Being a parent is a full-time job. Most parents are juggling work and our kids’ schedules. You’re trying to make sure your kids are eating nutritious food, getting plenty of sleep, keeping up with homework and, oh yeah, having fun. It can get hectic, I know.
If you are a parent, there’s one more thing I want you to do: Get to your parent-teacher conference.
It’s your chance to sit down and catch up with your child’s teacher and learn about your child’s progress in school.
We want you to understand what is being taught in the classroom, how your child is progressing in school, and what you can do at home to help.
We also want to hear from you about how we can serve your child better.
Here’s a list of questions to consider asking when you go:
