   A Message From the Principal

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas break. We are back in school and on track for finishing up first semester and charging forward into second. I’d like to give you some information that could be extremely important for your child and family as we move into the last few months of this school year.

Keep in mind that at the end of the year I will be making decisions about promotion, retention and summer school. Student work in class, grades, MAP scores and scores on state assessments will all be considered as these decisions are made. We have completed the Winter MAP tests and will have another round of testing in the spring. You will be receiving four more reports from us, not including the one going out January 9th, between now and the end of the year. Please monitor closely your child’s progress on these measures. For students who may possibly be retained, summer school will be mandatory. I ask now that you plan vacations carefully and with your student’s grades and scores in mind.

I will be sending other notices as the semester progresses but I need for parents to keep tabs on their child’s progress so that no surprises arise in June. Hard work in the classroom now can help assure that students do not have to deal with the stress of possible retention or the strain of summer school. Stay in contact with teachers in order to help assure your child’s success.

Happy New Year!


Dr. Harris
