We are off and running…. we have had a few bumps and had to make a few adjustments, but we are thankful and blessed to be back in school with the students. Please be patient with us in any additional adjustments that will need to be made.
The extreme heat this past week has provided another challenge, but we have endured. The staff at the main building noticed that the building seemed cooler than it would have last year during the heat. We believe it is due to the new roof. What an added benefit to the blessing of a new roof. No more leaks and cooler classrooms.
We are NOT sending home the Falcon Connection this year by hard copy. Please check the website (Falcon Connection) for new information.
Fun Lunch Online
Look for Fun Lunch Order Form and instructions for ordering online on the website. A pink hard copy was also sent home last week to explain the new procedure.
The early release time has not allowed students to have a study hall in their schedule. We want to focus on getting the instruction times covered while they are at school and have them use the extra time provided by early release as a study hall.
See Saw is an online learning platform that we will be using this year. We will be using it to give assignments and communication with the students throughout the year. 5th-12th grade students will be getting their login codes on September 8. Students must check their See Saw accounts for homework when they are absent from school.
