Thought for the Day 

“I'm not everybody's cup of tea. But sometimes criticism can be hurtful. Be respectful. I'm a good piano player, I can sing well, I write good songs. If you don't like it, fair enough. But give me a break.”

~Elton John

September PBIS Word of the Month Respect: Showing regard for self, others, property, and those in authority.

Student Announcements  

Students, if you feel sick, please ask to see the school Nurse. Do not simply text, email or call your parent / guardian and ask to be picked up. We need to track all illnesses through the Nurse's Office. Also, it is a violation of school policy for students to communicate with a private device to their parent/guardian without explicit permission from a teacher or the Office during the school day.
