Principal's Update 2/28/2024

Hello Roadrunner Families, 

There are many events coming up on our calendar in the next few weeks.  First, we hope to see many of you next week, or the week after, at our family conferences.  If you have not yet signed up for a time with your child's teacher, please see the post below. Please note, our Storybook Character day has moved to FRIDAY MARCH 1st.  Send your child to school dressed as their favorite storybook character!  Finally, there is NO SCHOOL on Tuesday March 5th due to it being a polling day and some district schools are utilized.  

Please also see the posts below for information on upcoming activities you can register your students in.  We have a spring season of Girls on The Run for students in 3 - 5th grade, Summer Targeted Services, Freedom School and Summer Community Education classes.  

Thank you to all of you who have participated in The Kids heart Challenge!  I have had many students tell me they have completed Finn's mission and have seen many hearts on backpacks.  Thanks to families who participated.  

In Partnership,
Principal Smith

Hello Roadrunner families,

Today is bus driver appreciation day.  We would like to take this time to thank all of our bus drivers who get our kids safely to school each day.  Make sure to remind your child to thank their driver this week!  

We hope to see you on Friday at our PTA school dance!  This event is hosted by the PTA and is free of charge. Please do remember all students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian, this is not a drop off event. PTA will have some snacks available for purchase.  

Also take some time to register for Spring Conferences.  Click on the link below to sign up for a time for your family.  If you are not available on any of those evenings, please reach out to your child's teacher to work out an alternative time.  Our goal is to meet with every family.  

There are a variety of summer opportunities for your child as well.  Please see the posts below for more information about Freedom School, Targeted Services and Community Ed offerings!
