Have an awesome Fall Break! We will see everyone on Monday, October 15th for the first day back for the second quarter.


We wanted to say THANK YOU to our students and teachers for putting on such an incredible Constitution Program. Mr. Claridge and Ms. Chilton surely out did themselves with this performance.


Several people have requested a copy of the "Reality Check" that Mrs. Jeppson gave in her opening remarks at the Constitution Program on Saturday night.

• You will not be rewarded for bad behavior.

• Being told "no" is part of life. Get over it.

• You are free to make your choice. You are not free from the consequences.

• Life is not fair.

• You are not the boss.

• The world does not revolve around you.

• Respect is earned, it is not given.

• The world owes you nothing. Work for it.

• Fits and tantrums will get you nothing. Stop wasting your time.

• You put yourself here. You need to fix you.

• Close your mouth, open your ears.

• If you are on the right path, it will always be uphill.


Our annual Fall Carnival will take place on Friday, November 2nd from 4 pm - 7 pm. Check the Friday packet for more information. We need parent volunteers!
