Community Patrons, Parents and Students,

I would like to thank everyone who attended our ice cream social hosted by PTO on September 21st. We had a large gathering and I really enjoyed meeting the students and parents that make up our district. Working together we can make great things happen for our kids.

There are a few dates I would like to remind everyone to make sure they capture. We will have a Professional Development day on October 16th, which means no school for students. Our Parent/Teacher conferences will be held on October 20th and October 22nd. A note will go home in the next couple of weeks, letting parents know of their assigned times to meet with their child's teachers. Please make every effort to attend these conferences.

Seventh and eighth grade basketball games will begin starting October 6th. Future games will be posted on our district website calendar. Our students love playing in front of large crowds, so please come out and support the Cardinals.

Once again, I would like to thank everyone for their support of our school and continually working with their child to make our district a huge success.
