The program is available to students who are enrolled in face-to-face or online learning or any community members 18 and under. Online students (and/or parents) or other non-school community members may come to the Middle School loop daily from 9:30-10:00 AM to receive lunches. If this timeframe is not convenient, please contact food service director Steve McDiarmid to make other arrangements.
PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) in action!
What is School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports? School-wide PBIS is a multi-tiered framework to make schools more effective places. It establishes a social culture and the behavior supports needed to improve social, emotional, behavioral, and academic outcomes for all students. Our elementary schools highlight aspects of PBIS in their wonderful homemade videos! Check out RESPONSIBILITY!
Elementary Celebrates Mini-Festival of the Book!
Even though Festival of the Book was canceled this year due to COVID, our elementary schools celebrated a “Mini-Festival of the Book Week” from November 9-13. The week was filled with the wonderful authors that were scheduled to visit and some incredible enrichment activities. We are very thankful to the many donors who purchased books for each of our students! Be sure to view the video!
