Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. – William Arthur Ward
Day Light Savings – This Sunday you get an extra hour of sleep. Remember to turn your clocks back!
As many of you have noticed, 3100 E. is under heavy construction. We are encouraging all drivers to use the south entrance of the school and enter from 9800 S. Please remember the traffic flow for this driveway is one way only. You will need to exit on 3100 E. turn right (south) to get back to 9800 S. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during construction.
Report cards will be sent home on Monday, November 28th. Please check your students back packs for a sealed envelope.
Please remember that students are NOT allowed to cross the cross walk without an adult. Please do not motion your student to the car or ask the safety patrol to cross your student for you. Safety is our first priority. With 10 buses and dozens of cars we need your support to safely cross the students.

Navigating a digital world can be challenging. There are many questions adults and students have about how to keep their identity safe and how to use digital resources ethically. As adults, we are careful about what we post online and we keep tabs on our privacy settings and formulate secure passwords. Our students, however, may not be so savvy. Have a discussion with your student(s) about their "digital footprint." The following video gives a fantastic description about what a digital footprint is and how it begins before we are even born.
