Three day week

A three day school week, temperatures in the teens, and snow on the ground. You have to love winter in the Ozarks! We are thankful to have escaped the last two weeks with only one snow day to make-up.

Teachers spent the day Monday in professional development and meetings to continue our improvement as a building while students were away. Be on the lookout for a new and improved building website that will be coming soon.  Our hope is that this will strengthen our ability to communicate with our community. We encourage parents to take some time to visit our teacher blogs. This is a great way to keep up with what is going on in your child’s classes.

Student illness has been on the rise recently in the building. Our custodians and nurses have been busy doing their part to help with this. We would greatly appreciate parents remembering the district fever free policy to limit the spread of illness here at school. Hopefully we will be on the road to recovery soon!

Enjoy the winter weekend



Welcome to 2011! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break and is ready for the downhill side of the school year. Everyone seemed to be a little droopy-eyed Monday morning but we survived our first full week back and welcome the first Friday of the new year! The change to second semester has also brought several new faces to our building family including students and staff.

Today we celebrated our second quarter iChoose award winners with 12 students that will be going to Silver Dollar City in the spring and 11 more that earned a field trip to watch a movie next week. Everyone will have a chance to redeem their iChoose stamps next Friday at our 2nd quarter iChoose store. We appreciate all the donations that help to make this program happen for our students! Next Thursday we will take some time to recognize our first semester honor roll and perfect attendance students. 6th grade at 9:00 am and 5th at 9:30 am. As always, parents are encouraged and welcome to attend.

Have a great weekend!
