Dear Families,


It is hard to believe it is August already.  It has been so exciting to see so many of our students come to visit the Bookmobile and participate in so many wonderful learning activities this summer. We wanted to share a few reminders to all families as we prepare to return to school this fall.  


"Booked for Summer" is our district-wide reading and learning program for all students Pre-K to 12.  


Students who are entering pre-k to grade 8 are expected to bring their stamped Booked for Summer Passport to school on their first day.  Click here to download and print a copy of the Booked for Summer Passport.  


All students entering grades 9-12 are expected to read and create a journal based on the  Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave by Frederick Douglass.  Students are expected to bring their journals to school on the first day of school as they will be doing a school wide activity with their journals during the first week of school. Some classes also have additional required readings. Please see our school website and the Booked for Summer website for more information.  

The 2018/19 academic calendar is available online.

  • The first day of school for students in kindergarten through grade 12 is on Wednesday, September 5.

  • The first day of school for all preschool students is on Monday, September 10.

  • Tuesday, September 11 is city primary election day and a professional learning day for teachers: NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS.

Other important dates for the school year are listed on the calendar and highlighted on the district website.


We are looking forward to seeing you back at school in September!

Attendance Calls

posted Apr 10, 2018, 11:19 AM by Bridget Krieger

The district is now making automated attendance calls to homes when students are out sick. These calls just started this week so there may be some issues as they work out the kinks. If your child is out sick and you do not get a call, please let us know. 

As always, families still need to either call the school or send in a note about your child’s absence so the absence can be excused.

Drop and Go of Students in the AM

posted Feb 6, 2018, 10:02 AM by Bridget Krieger

  • Families please read this reminder and pass along information to family members, friends and other relatives who may drop off your children in the morning. It can be very hazardous when people don’t follow the rules. Please do not drop your children off in the bus lane. That is the area before the driveway that is reserved for buses. Please also be patient. You may not always get the closest spot in the Live Parking (or Drop and Go) section, but that does not mean it is OK to double park or drop off your child in the middle of the street or middle of driveway. The Live Parking is set up so that you can safely drop off your children and then continue on without turning off your vehicle. If you would like to walk your child up the driveway to school, you are not allowed to leave your car in the Live Parking area.  Instead please park on the other side of the street or at St. Paul’s Church.

Thank you Barnes & Nobles and Book Donors

Our students were so excited to have these titles available!
