Trikke for a Cure

Thank you to all who supported our Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser, Trikke for a Cure! It was a great learning experience for our kids and plenty of fun for all. Our teachers and students did a fantastic job of organizing and planning this event. ETV will air a story about it next week and Channel 48 WAFF even came out to cover the event!! As always, thank you for your continued support. Go Hawks!!!

Parenting Day Success!

Thank you to the many parents who came out for our Parenting Day activities! I heard many positive remarks and it was refreshing to see the excitement about school from teachers, students and parents. The Student-Led Conferences were a big hit and we have had quite a few requests to do them again after the next grading period. We will! These conferences allow students to take ownership of their grades and behavior while encouraging them to set goals and ask for assistance when needed. Look for more activities like this in the future!

A quick building update: We are on schedule! The office has begun to transition and PE, band and choir are next. Teachers will be assigned room numbers very soon and more furniture will be delivered as the month progresses. We will have a Ribbon Cutting and Open House on December 17th. More information will be given soon! Thank you for your continued support! Go Hawks!
