Hand with Three Fingers RaisedFollow the Three R's:
Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn 

Students are expected to show respect for fellow students, teachers and any school personnel. 

Children are expected to follow rules and regulations and to respect authority and the rights of others.  While this Code of Conduct is designed for students, it is expected that all members of the school community will adhere to the same standards.

School rules governing behavior in classrooms, in the cafeteria, at recess, in the corridors, in the lavatories, at assemblies, on the bus, and on bicycles have been developed by a committee consisting of the administration, teachers and parents.  These rules and expectations will be regularly reviewed.

The Family and Student Handbook linked here was developed by a committee of administrators, teachers, and parents to provide you with the information needed for the school year.  All of our students are expected to observe the procedures set forth in this handbook. If you have any questions during the school year, please contact your child's teacher.  If you have additional questions or need further clarification, contact either of the school principals or the superintendent.

A Curriculum Night is held in all schools by the end of the second full week of school.   The Open House for Grades 1 – 3 is held on a different evening than Grades 4 – 6.

Curriculum Night is intended as a get-acquainted session and not as a time to raise questions about specific children. At Curriculum Night teachers give an overview of the curriculum, explain classroom rules and procedures, and answer general questions as they pertain to their classroom.

Curriculum Nights are designed for parents; it is not appropriate for children to attend.
