REMINDER
Always bring your ID when coming to the office to pick up a child or if you are going to be on campus.  If you are picking up a child after school and do not have the pick up tag in your vehicle or you are picking them up late, you will need to sign the child out in the office.  These procedures are for the safety of all our children.  If you are wanting homework for your child who has missed school, you need to call ahead and give the teacher time to get the work together and then pick it up the next day.

To find out more about the 7 Habits, please visit

7 HABITS OF HEALTHY KIDS -

Your child has been learning the language and meaning of the 7 Habits, and each class has created a mission statement that has guided them in making decisions throughout the school year.

How can you help support what your child is learning at school? Easy - use the same language! By hearing the same language at home and school, we send the children a strong message of what we believe is important and that we are on the same team. When parents and schools support each other, the sky is the limit!


HABIT #1 - Be Proactive (You're in Charge)
HABIT #2 - Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
HABIT #3 - Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
HABIT #4 - Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
HABIT #5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood (Listen Before You Talk)
HABIT #6 - Synergize (Together is Better)
HABIT #7 - Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)
HABIT #8 ~ Find Your Voice (Speak Up!)


STUDENTS AND PARENTS ... CHECK OUT THIS COOL WEBSITE -
