DROP OFF/PICK UP We want all our students to be safe during before school drop off and afterschool pick up. Please follow our drop off/pick up instructions which are – *Drop off is on the east side of the school (gym door) until 8:10, after 8:10 students should be dropped off at the front door. *Pick up is on the east side ONLY. The busses pick up in front of the school. *Drop off/pick up is curb to car – if you park across the street, please use the crosswalk at the corner. We have seen many parents telling their kids to cross in the middle of the street. This is not safe. Even if you are crossing with your student, please use the crosswalk. *Do not pull up next to the pick up line and tell your child to cross between cars or busses. This is very dangerous and we do not want anyone to get hurt. *The line should be continuously moving. If you need to come into the school, please park in the parking lot or across the street. Please don’t block the line. *Please be courteous to the staff that is helping with pick up. They are helping to make sure kids get home safely. *Please be courteous to other drivers. *Please pick your kids up in a timely manner. We do not have staff to supervise students after school. Thanks for your help. The drop off/pick up line moves more quickly if everyone does their part.

In pe, Mrs. Moyes had each grade level create a warrior code. They did such a great job of thinking about how they can be a warrior. They were so thoughtful in thinking about that traits they needed to exhibit to be a warrior. We hope you are enjoying the book. There is plenty of time to catch up and lots of prizes to still earn for reading!
