Daily Student Pick-Up Procedures. We encourage all of our students to ride the bus but understand there are circumstances that require an end-of-the-day pickup. We have put procedures in place to make afternoon pick-up a safe experience for your child and you.  
  • Daily pick-up students will be dismissed to the cafeteria each afternoon at 3:08. 
  • Students will be released when their car arrives.  We have school staff members in the pick-up lane, they will radio to the staff member in the cafeteria indicating the NUMBER displayed on your rearview mirror.  This number will correspond to the same number displayed on your student's backpack. 
  • Students should be picked up at 3:10 PM.  Our buses leave our lot as close to 3:20 PM as possible.   
  • If an emergency should arise, please contact the school office immediately.  The office staff will let you know where to pick up your child.  Please know that the office closes at 3:45 PM and all children must be picked up prior to closing. 
  • All phoned-in changes of dismissal should be called in to the office no later than 2:00 PM.   

Our theme for this school year is CHAMPS. The overall goal of the CHAMPS building and classroom management system is to develop and instructional structure in which students are responsible, motivated, and highly engaged in the specific task at hand. CHAMPS is an acronym for the following:
C - Conversation
H - Help
A - Activity
M - Movement
P - Participation
S - Success
We have established CHAMPS expectations throughout the building. Check out the posters the next time you visit. Ask your child about CHAMPS!

Most of you are familiar with our building theme of 5-2-1-0. This theme represents positive healthy choices that each of us can make daily in our school and home. The concept is very easy! Each day we strive for 5 fruits and vegetables, 2 hours of screen time (or plug-in time), 1 hour of exercise, and 0 carbonated or sugary beverages!
Each quarter we will focus on one of the components.
