During May, we are focusing on Habit 8– Find Your Voice. This means, “I have special gifts and talents. I use these strengths to make positive contributions to my friendships, my class, my school, my family and my community. It is important to me to encourage others to believe in themselves.”
Here are some questions you might discuss as a family: How can you encourage others to find their voice? How good is your family at finding their voice? How might you set a goal around Habit 8?

Safety is a top priority on our campus. A new safety feature being implemented in our district called SafeSchools Alert. You can now use this new alert system to notify our administrative team of any safety concerns you may have about our campus. We encourage you and your children to use this system to play an active part in school safety by reporting incidents of vandalism, bullying, suspicious activity, or any other concerning behavior you feel may need to be addressed. SafeSchools Alert allows you to report in five convenient ways:
Please use our district code, 1679, in your report to ensure it is routed to our administrative team. We are proud to add another resource to our families to help promote school safety. Of course, we still encourage and welcome all other types of communication between you and our team to make certain that we are addressing any concerns you have as they arise.
Together, we will see your child’s potential so clearly that they see it in themselves.
Yours in Education,
Dr. Jennifer Robinson
