Cookie Dough Sale

Thank you to all of our families that participated in the cookie dough sale this year!  The Game Truck, for those who sold 20 items or more, is here on Dec. 1 and the students have been notified.  The delivery of items is still scheduled for December 12 from 3:00-6:00 p.m.   Please make plans to stop in and pick up your items as we do not have a lot of freezer space for items not taken home.  Thank you again for your support!

Building to Kindergarten

Our annual fall Building to Kindergarten presentation was a huge success!  We had a huge crowd that packed the cafeteria to learn about what it takes to be an entering kindergarten student next fall.  If you have a preschool child entering in the Fall of 2024, but were unable to attend, please contact the office for the materials.  Thanks to our kinder team including Cassie Harrison, Nickie Roller, Cristina Mercer, Megan Johnson, our reading coach Beth Wesley, student teacher Angela Sammut, and all our reading intervention paras for creating a great program!

Parent Etips

Boost literacy skills with fun activities at home

Students do better in school when they practice reading and writing skills at home. To boost your child’s literacy skills, incorporate fun reading and writing activities throughout the day. Reading is not just for bedtime! Keep books where your child can pick them up any time. Start a family journal. Play word games. Then, set an example and let your child see you pick up a book or write a poem in your own downtime.

Image result for attendance matters

Support your child in three ways every day

From day to day, you may be helping your child with schoolwork in many different ways. But according to research, three things support school success every day. The first is making class attendance a priority. The second is reading with your child. The third is making time for productive, screen-free activities. When the school day is over, encourage your child to read, play board games, exercise or think.

Important Attendance Information

Please read the attitude article on the importance of student attendance, which is mandatory by the laws of the State of Michigan.  Please be aware that we are required to follow up with families either verbally, in writing, or both when absences reach the 10 full day mark.

The attendance/tardy process:

  • Ten full day absences- 1st attendance letter sent home

  • 5 additional absences- 2nd attendance letter sent home

  • Ongoing after 15 absences- referral to our liaison officer for truancy


  • Students are considered tardy after 8:40am

  • After 8:40 am, Parents will be required to walk their student into the office to sign them into the building

  • If a student has accumulated 5 tardies, the parent will need to sign an acknowledgement letter of the tardies

  • After 15 tardies, a meeting will take place with the principal to discuss possible solutions.

Excessive tardy arrival/very early dismissal

  • Student arrival after 9:30am will equal a half-day AM absence

  • Student dismissal that takes place prior to 2:30pm with count for a half-day PM absence

  • Picking up your student between 2:30 and 3:30 does not count against them


Line-up Procedures

  • Students should line up at their assigned door

  • The playground is always closed before school starts

  • Parents will not be permitted to enter with students/stand in the halls- normal protocol to sign in with the main office does not change

  • Students will enter the classroom at the 8:30 bell

Be Careful Safety First Safety Sign MGNF971

Traffic Pattern


As we all need to get our children to school, safety is always the primary concern.    We will do our best to help ensure an orderly drop-off/pick-up daily, but we need your help in making that happen.

** No child should never run across the street to get into a car.

**Help our traffic issues around school by parking a block or so away and WALKING your child before and after school.

**School traffic flow MUST go clockwise around the school. Make sure that your passenger door is ALWAYS closest to the curb.
