In just a few short weeks, the 2017/18 school year will be under way. Our staff has been working hard to get the buildings ready for the first day of school, when our hallways will be filled with the energy of our students once again. The first day of school is always greeted with anticipation, as it allows everyone to begin the school year with a fresh start.
As in the past, we will continue to offer free breakfast to all students in all three buildings. All students are encouraged to participate in the breakfast program, as eating breakfast prepares the student for a meaningful day of learning.
We are continuing our Community Lunch Programs again this year. These programs are offered six times during the school year. All community members are invited to have lunch and hear from our students. Please see page 7 of this newsletter for additional information. These dates are also included in our community calendar which will be mailed out shortly.
We continue to focus on maintaining a safe and secure environment for our students and staff. All school doors will be secured during the school day. The main entrance of each building will be monitored through a video intercom system to provide access to parents and visitors. Parents are asked to review our security procedures on page 5 of this newsletter, so they are aware of the steps that the administration will follow in the event of an incident.
Parents and community members are invited to participate in our monthly District School Improvement Team (DSIT) meetings. DSIT members serve a valuable role in guiding the learning and other activities of the District. An overview of the District Improvement Plan can be found on page 5 of this newsletter.
Please take some time to review the information that is contained in this newsletter. If you have any questions regarding the information, please contact the appropriate administrator. As we move through the school year, if you have any ideas, thoughts, questions, or concerns; please contact me at 269-756-7675.
