NEW Drop Off and Take Home Procedures!

PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY TO THE END!!!!

FIRST POINT: EXPECT VERY LONG LINES AND DELAYS when dropping off and picking up your child.

SECOND POINT: EXPECT LIMITED PARKING SPACES due to construction and improvements being made to our school. This has shifted the parking areas for other campuses to our area.

THIRD POINT: NO parents are allowed upstairs on the intermediate campus. Meet the Teacher will be on August 14th from 4:30-5:30.  If you cannot attend due to your work, a Parent Orientation night will be scheduled soon. School Supplies will be taken in the gym and placed on a cart to be delivered to your child’s classroom once students have been released to go upstairs.

FOURTH POINT: If you have not yet registered your child, there will be no class assignment made until BOTH Online and In-Person documents are completed. Parents will have to wait until teachers and classes have been dismissed from the gym to their classrooms before there will be staff members available to proceed with late registration. PLEASE KNOW: This may not take place until around 8:10 a.m.


Here are the student drop-off procedures that parents will need to review and know before the first day of school on Thursday morning, August 16th. There are lanes that specify BUSES ONLY, and there are lanes designated for CARS. Please watch the video below for how to use these.  Parents with Primary students ONLY will need to drop 0ff primary students on the Lower Level of the building which is the Primary Campus. Parents may not drop off students and allow them to walk across Roughneck Drive due to safety issues and construction congestion. Students may not be dropped off in the Intermediate School parking lot and allowed to walk across the parking lot to the sidewalk. This is very dangerous for your child. Students should never be dropped off earlier than 7:15. There is no school personnel available to supervise students at that time, and they will be completely unattended. Doors to the building open at 7:30.

THIS VIDEO WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DROP-OF:

Cursive Writing is here!

Hello everyone! I can’t believe this year is winding down! It has gone so fast and just keeps going faster! I know we talked about this at the beginning of third grade and it’s finally time! 

We are going to start learning some basic cursive writing! We will start doing the letters a, c, d and g. These will help form other letters! I am so excited to get to show you all how to use cursive! 

Here is a quick video to get you started! Be looking for examples of these cursive letters all around you!
