Hello Tiger Families!

Hello Tiger Families,

Today in Advisory we delivered our Principal’s Honor Roll and Honor Roll certificates and stickers. Are you ready for this?! 210 students earned a 4.0 in our school and 228 students earned a 3.5 to 3.99. That is a total of 438 students!

This is FANTASTIC! Our students are working hard and achieving really amazing things in our classrooms. This year, we moved to a new way to recognize our students. Along with their certificate, students now receive a sticker with the year and quarter marked on it. They can collect these stickers throughout their middle school career to show their achievement and dedication. We believe this is a more long-lasting way to celebrate our students AND a way to follow our district’s guidelines of not utilizing our school budget for food incentives.

This week, I also had the chance to get into 7th grade classrooms to work with students on the behaviors and skills that align with our school values. We did a really neat activity where students “connected the dots” between their daily actions and our ROARS values. I had a TON of fun with the students…and I strongly believe that these types of lessons and conversations make our school a more positive place to learn.

Also, parents, please take a moment to check out the Recent Updates section of our newsletter each week. This is where a lot of our information is posted.

Yellow starburst that says Attendance Matters!  White wording that is on the left of the graphic that says Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow

If your student is absent for a full day, you have 24-48 hours to call in with the reason for the absence, after that it will be marked unexcused. Per board policy, if a student is absent 10 days excused or not, absences will begin to be marked “unexcused” unless previously noted and approved by school administration or there is a doctor’s note provided to the school.

If you know your student will be absent, tardy or checking out of school please fill out this Google form.

Please provide the school with a note from the doctor, orthodontist, dentist, therapist, or any appointment each time you go.
