Painting a Bright Future for All Students


  1. Attendance is a key factor to helping children to succeed in school.  School starts at 7:45 and ends at 2:35
  2. Parents are encouraged to provide a special place for homework that has little or no distractions.
  3. Communication is very important in any relationship; so make sure you check your Ed-line account weekly and your child’s folder daily.  You are also encouraged to email or call teachers (names and numbers are listed below).
  4. Parents are encouraged to have high academic and behavior expectations for their child.
  5. Parents and grandparents are encouraged to volunteer for field trips, helping struggling students, helping in the classroom, playground and lunchroom.  Please make sure you fill out a VIPs form (you can get this from Ms. Hicks).  This form helps us keep track of our volunteer hours.
