Wildcat of the Week
  • When your child is scheduled to be the W.O.W.,
    he/she can create a poster displaying photographs
    and information about family members, pets,
    hobbies, friends, sports, etc. or just bring in
    pictures to hang up. When it is your childs
    week, he/she will be given special privileges.
    Students can bring in their posters or pictures
    on Monday of their assigned week, and they will
    share what they bring in with the class.

  • We encourage students to bring healthy snack and
    a water bottle to school.
  • Our lunch time is after noon so it is important
    for students to eat a healthy breakfast and a
    snack for optimal learning.
  • There will be a snack cart starting soon selling
    healthy snacks for 50 cents.

Related Arts 125-200

    identified as colors.

  • Every Monday, students will have an additional
    class with one of these teachers.

Attendance Missing Work
  • Students need to be here at school in order to
    learn and achieve their goals.
  • However, students who are sick or hurt will not
    have a productive learning day. There are days
    that your child needs to stay home and
    recuperate-we understand that, but please
    reinforce the importance of learning.
  • Students will have 5 days after returning to
    school to complete any work missed while absent.
    It may be necessary for parents assistance when
    trying to complete these assignments.

  • Grades are taken in every subject.
  • All assignments merit equal value.

    specific designated times.

    in class.
  • If students are absent, it is their
    responsibility to check the missing work binder
    and pick up work they missed. Students have 5
    days to make up work due to an absence.

Changes this year
