"[My family] believed in the public school because they believed in a community. They believed the important thing was what was in your head. My grandmother was a schoolteacher. She taught in a one-room country school north of Anoka, Minnesota, and my grandmother had a certain contempt for people who made a great show and were not that bright. My grandmother said, 'Don't be a 10-dollar haircut on a 25-cent head.' You avoided that by going to school and paying attention. You became a worthwhile person and a member of the community."       Garrison Keillor

"Children need all school workers. A person is not 'just' a janitor, not 'just' a custodian. Janitors can see children when [teachers] don't see them, and bus drivers recognize that children who are disruptive on the bus are likely to be disorderly in the classroom. They're partners in education. We need each other to make this work."

BUSSING NOTE…………Just a reminder please call the office or send a note with your child with any changes to your normal bus routine.  Again yesterday we ran into a situation where the office had a note and the bus driver had a text with a different drop off – which came first the note or the text?  What happens if your normal driver isn’t driving that day?  The procedure the office takes when changes are made to the “normal” routine is…….A note for each student involved (Pre-K thru 1st gets handed to the teacher and 2nd through 12th gets placed on their locker) is created as well as a note for each bus involved. We also try to keep a daily log of changes for a quick reference in the office.  We really do aim to please but also need your cooperation.
