Student Drop Off and Pickup Reminders…

In general, we wish to keep student drop off in the morning and pickup in the afternoon as efficient of a process as possible.  To that effect, please remember a couple of items that help this process to go smoothly for all involved:
-    when dropping off and picking up students, be sure to pull forward as far as possible so that multiple cars can drop off or load students at the same time.
-    if, for any reason, you need to get out of your vehicle (driver), please do not stay in the pick up/drop off lane, but pull to the side or forward to an area that does not block other drivers.
-    upon dropping off, be sure that you do not stay in the drop-off lane longer than necessary to drop off children.  You may pull forward to the glass doors and use the longer sidewalk if necessary to give other cars accessibility to the main sidewalk (by the railing/yellow striped zone).
Thank you for helping us to make these processes efficient and timely!        - Mr. Horning

Christmas Program coming up December 17th!

Students are preparing for our annual Christmas Program!  We are excited again to have all of our students involved, and we will again be having a dinner prior to the program.  Please contact Mrs. Stribling if you have any questions.

From the Principal's Desk

Want to get even more involved in the life of our school?  I encourage you to do so.  There are many ways that families get involved… maybe volunteer to help with lunch, be a part of the parent/teacher fellowship… be a reader in a classroom, just check in to see if there’s a task you could help with… or come and cheer for one of the school’s sports teams.  It is quite exciting to see so many families so involved.  Our school truly is a unique place, and it is because of you!
            In Christ,        
           Mr. Horning
