Principal's Monthly Message
There is plenty going on at our wonderful school, and we want to take advantage of every possible opportunity to let you know so you can join us as you see fit. Please take a moment to review the attached calendar and keep it in a handy place so you can refer to it on a regular basis.
Parent Conferences – Our parent/teacher conferences are schedule for March 7th and 8th. You should have already received the sign up sheets. Contact the office or your child’s teacher to receive another one if your child misplaced it. On Wednesday, March 7th, conferences will be held from 2:20-6:30 PM, with dinner for the staff blocked out from 4:00-4:30 PM. On Thursday, March 8th, conferences will be held from 1:20-4:00 PM. Again, you are highly encouraged to attend and hope you make it a priority to join us for one of those two dates. Release time on Wednesday will continue to be 1:45 PM, and Thursday is a minimum day, with release at 12:45 PM.
Uniforms - We have noticed a decrease in uniform wear, primarily from our upper grade students. A reminder that students are expected to dress in full uniform on a daily basis. Our uniform program is only as successful as the support we receive from you. The uniform policy was requested four years ago and we worked hard to put this policy in place. We ask that you please send your children in uniform to school on a daily basis. Tops are to be burgundy in color, while the bottoms can be either khaki or navy blue.
Morning Drop Off – We have noticed that the drop off area continues to be congested in the mornings. Please forward as much as possible and have your child(ren) get off if you are inside the curb area. Do not wait until you are directly in front of the entrance gate. In addition, when exiting our drop off area, turn right only. Left turns are not allowed, and we do have a traffic sign posted to indicate this. Thank you in advance for helping us with this continued request.
Math Night – Join us for our math night, sponsored by our FIAT staff/parent group. This will be a great night for you and your child to participate in hands on math activities that are fun, engaging, and provide opportunities for learning. The event is on March 20th at 5:30 PM. Join us!I thank you in advance for your support and cooperation. I know that by working together we will continue to have a great year! Please feel free to stop by the office if you have any questions or concerns.
Bighorn Golf Club Grant
Thank you to Mrs. Rivera, our assistant principal, who worked with a volunteer grant writer to obtain $7,500 in funds for our school to purchase playground and PE equipment. Mrs. Rivera attended a dinner event, where she was handed the check from the Bighorn Golf Club Charities. We are thankful of these funds and will continue to seek opportunities to supplement our funds through opportunities such as this one.
