  • Pop Corn Mondays

    Classes that achieve Attendance and/or Individual students who have completed Homework percentages as stated below will have popcorn on Mondays following a PRIDE Day.

    This year attendance percentages will be kept weekly. The state has set the bar at 98% so each week classrooms that reach that mark, with no tardies, will receive popcorn on the Monday following a PRIDE Day. 


    Homework percentages are kept on a two week basis . Students who successfully complete two weeks of homework will also receive popcorn on Monday.



    Upon a student's third tardy, they will miss a recess for each tardy thereafter for the remainder of that grading period.

 The Best "ME" I Can BE
This Year's Theme
Each year a new theme is carefully selected. The theme works hand-in-hand with our Character Ed. focus which is the backbone of our school.  Our daily use of lifeskills and lifelong guidelines are the basis of this program. We celebrate these lifeskills every other Friday at what we call our P.R.I.D.E. Day. This stands for Personal Responsibility In Daily Effort. Making the right decision and doing the right thing is not always easy but these celebrations are a reminder that it is up to each child to try their personal best.
