Dear families,

I hope you enjoy today's beautiful weather and have a nice weekend! Remember, next week is a short week and next Friday is a teacher workday so students will begin their spring break! ~Dr. Sykes


If your student is a car rider or walker, please make sure they arrive as early as possible if they need to eat breakfast. We have a lot of students arriving at or after 9:15 and then they ask for breakfast. We don’t want to send any student to class hungry and also make sure they are in class on time so they don’t miss instruction that starts at 9:15.

Dismissal Time:

Our school day ends at 3:45 and that’s when students begin exiting the building to load cars, buses, daycare vans, walk, and go to the YMCA. We wait to transition to our dismissal locations inside the building until 3:40 to maximize instructional time as much as possible. Thank you for understanding. 

Volunteer Signup Acess:

Families and community members can finally sign up to volunteer without being on campus! If you still need to sign up to help in your child’s classroom, on a field trip, or at field day, please use this link.

Positivity Project Trait for the week of 3/27- Humor

This week our school community will be focusing on the character strength of Humor. Humor means you like to laugh and bring smiles to other people.

Humor is a sense of playfulness and lightness. It is a way of looking at and describing the world that brings laughter to people. A person with the strength of humor is skilled at seeing the funny side of things, bringing smiles and laughter to others, and identifying and communicating the absurdities in life. People with this strength don’t specifically need to be joke tellers, although many are.

Humor plays an important role in helping groups of people rise above difficult circumstances and boost morale. It removes us from our present difficulties by easing tension and making life more fun. This is why athletic teams often need a jokester to help them get through tough losses and early morning fitness sessions. On a larger societal level, humor often helps downtrodden groups to find cohesion and strength. This is why Simon Wiesenthal said, “Humor is the weapon of unarmed people: it helps people who are oppressed smile at the situation that pains them.”

To practice and encourage the character strength of humor with your child, please visit the Positivity Project’s P2 for Families (password: P2) where together you will watch a video, read a quote and talk about the answers to three questions.
