2. September Monthly Positive Promotion
Information from the Superintendent
This year we have set a goal to improve in four areas:
1. Student Safety
2. Excellence in Education
3. Fiscal Responsibility
4. Home-School Relations
Various strategies will be used to accomplish these goals.
We ask each of you to help us by:
1. Avoid using reverse while picking up and dropping off children.
2. Access the following website with your children to practice the SBAC test: (This test will replace the ISAT for grades 3-11)
3. Assure your children attend school each and every day. Specifically the 1st 36 days of school (until Nov.1st). If we increase the % of students attending by 1%, the state will fund our district an extra $100,000.
4. Spread news about positive happenings in our schools. A list can be found on our website.
Special Thanks to Our 2013/2014 Sponsors!
