Class lists with teachers will be posted to the website and at the Elementary School on Monday, August 5th.
New students in grades PreK-1st will need to be screened. Charlene Kringel, the Elementary school secretary, will be calling families soon to schedule.
School starts on Thursday, August 15th. If you are in a 5 day class, this would be your first day. Our Tuesday/Thursday Pre-K classes will start on this day as well. Those M/W/F Kindergartners will start on Friday, August 16th.
Beginning and End of School Day Routines
School starts at 8:15 AM. The first day of school you may come in anytime after 8:00 AM and walk your child to the classroom. There will be supplies to drop off, new rooms to see, meeting new teachers, etc. We will ask that all parents leave the classrooms at 8:30 AM so the teachers can begin their day. I will be outside by the front door entrance at 8:00 AM to help guide you and answer any questions.
Please have your student bring their lunch for that first two full weeks of school. School lunches will be served starting Monday, September 2nd. The school lunch menu will be provided within the first couple of weeks of school.
School dismisses at 2:50 PM. We have a pickup line (3 rows). Each row has arrows to designate which way to exit. Please stay in your car as we bring your child to you. We ask each of you to have a paper on your dash or window with your child's last name and grade level clearly written. It usually takes 10 minutes for this process, but please be patient in the first few weeks of school. If you prefer to park and get out of your car to pick up your student, see the teacher, or go into the school, please park on Horton Street (on the west side of the school) and walk to the front entrance. We will bring your child to you. For those students not yet picked up at 3:00 PM, they are automatically taken downstairs to our after school program -- Trojan Kids Club.
Trojan Kids Club - Before/After School Care
The TKC opens every morning at 7:00 AM for those families who need to drop their child off before 8:00 AM. Please park on Horton St. (west of the school). You will go through the gate and walk through the playground and down a ramp to the downstairs gym. Ring the doorbell, and our TKC staff member will let you in. There is a check in/out system right inside the door. This procedure also applies to after school pick up time any time after 4:00 PM. The TKC closes at 6:00 PM.
August 27th is "Parent Night". Time and details will come later. This is a very important evening for our parents. We first meet in the gym where teachers and staff will be introduced along with some information. Then you will be dismissed to go to your child's classroom to learn about expectations, communication, class schedules, etc. This is for parents only.
We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds. You say, I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. To the arrogant I say, Boast no more, and to the wicked, Do not lift up your horns. Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck. No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man. But is it God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.
But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you look for him with all you heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the Lord your God and obey him. For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which he confirmed to them by oath.
