Principal's Newsletter

Greetings to ALL!  We have had a great start to the 2017-2018 school year as we get settled into September.  We appreciate all of your support in helping our students be successful and set a good foundation for a great school year. 

Our Elementary STEM club held their first meeting yesterday after school.  Miss Watts is our club sponsor.  We currently have 23 students signed up!!!  We are looking forward to seeing all of the great creations and projects students build this year!! 
Let’s go GREYHOUNDS!!!

Our annual Computers for Education Fundraiser kick off was yesterday. Students are encouraged to bring completed booklets back to school by September 13th.  For every complete address, we receive $0.50.  The money earned will go towards funding activities and materials for our school.  Students receive prizes for participating by bringing back a completed booklet.  Thank you for supporting our school!!! 

Our Annual School Wide Title 1 Parent meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 26.  We look forward to sharing our 2017 Spring Stanford & MAP Data, State MAP Data, current reading, math, and science curriculum, Title 1 services available and parental involvement opportunities.  We hope to see you there!!!

Parent communication is vital to our students’ success.  Please feel free to visit our website for curriculum, standards, events, activities, and classroom information.  Textcaster is also used to communicate school wide events and activities.  Parent portal allows parents to access their students’ grades, lunch balances, attendance, etc.    

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has recently created a Trauma focused website full of resources for families to take advantage of.  Please see the information and website address located on the back of this newsletter. 

As always, if there are ever questions or concerns, I am happy to discuss them with you.  My email is or by calling the elementary office at 660-335-6348.
