Dear Parents/Guardians:

There is an all call going out tonight, 12/4/18, and here is what the message is about:

Recently we have noticed that families have been parking in the faculty lot on John St, next to the Board of Education building, during arrival and dismissal.  This is not safe for our staff or the students. Please refrain from parking in our lot between the hours of 7:30 am and 4 pm.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We are proud of all of our students, but during marking period one, we had some students in grades 4 and 5 reach Honor Roll and Honor Roll With Distinction.   In order to reach Honor Roll a student must have all grades 85 or better in every subject, and to reach Honor Roll With Distinction, requires grades of 95 or better in each subject.  See our list of Honor Rollees below:

Academic Achievement for MP 1 - 2018%2F19.pdf

We are also v
ery proud of our students who have made attendance a priority.  We had 156 students reach perfect attendance during marking period one.  This means these students were never absent or late during the first marking period.  They each received a note from the principal along with a blow pop.  We will be having this at the end of each marking period.

Congratulations to all our students on a successful marking period one!

Sincerely,
Sean Dunphy
