Visitors at Lunch
The following procedures will be in place while eating lunch on campus with your child: 1. All visitors must receive a pass from the office. Please be prepared to show your ID. 2. Visitors will eat lunch with their child at our designated visitor’s tables and not at our student tables. 3. When your child returns to class on their own please exit the cafeteria and return your pass to the office. 4. Out of courtesy for other visitors, if you have more than one child that you are going to eat lunch with and their lunch time is more than 10 minutes apart please exit the cafeteria and feel free to wait in the office until the next lunch time be- gins. This will avoid overcrowding at our visitor’s table and allow all visitors to en- joy eating lunch with their child.

Growth Mindset Affirmation
Growth Mindset Affirmation: One of our campus goals this school year is to help our students create a love of learning and a strong sense of resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Many times individuals think they’re either are or aren't smart (fixed mindset). Scientists have proven that the more times students use their brain in a positive sense the stronger (smarter) their brain becomes (growth mindset). Each month of this school year our campus will focus on one growth mindset affirmation. At the beginning of the month we will share the affirmation that will be our focus. For the month of October we are emphasizing "I'm Going to Train My Brain". In order to give you a better idea about this campus goal we are providing you with additional information that you can use at home. The whole idea is to let our students know that you can change your mindset by thinking things through.

A-F Accountability Resources
Narrated versions of the presentations over the A-F Accountability system are now available. One presentation provides an overview of the accountability system established by HB 22. Each of the remaining three presentations focuses on one domain in the new accountability system and highlights specific areas on which we are asking for feedback. View the narrated presentation

Students will be dismissed from school at our regular dismissal time, which is 3:25 p.m. Your child will take home their final report card on this day. Thank you for making this school year a tremendous success for all of our students. They have gained a great amount of knowledge and we are sure they are ready to enjoy their summer break.
