After they poured Keyton's tabs into their collection jar it appeared that he had saved about 1/2 gallon this summer. Keyton and his family are continuing to save the tabs and they hope you join in and bring them to Mrs. Stephanie Norris's second grade class in Room 206.

We have set September 15 as the date for retakes. Retakes are for those who were absent or if you have a facial expression you just can't live with! The eighth graders will have a candid photo, outside on the playground on this date.
We thank Mr. Joel Poston, our school photographer, for taking his time and making us all look great!

Mrs. Kim Stockton's first graders read a story about hats today and decided to design a hat of their own! They liked their creations so much the class went on a hat parade and shared their work with anyone who passed by them in the hall! Good job first graders, thanks for stopping by the computer lab to share.

WELCOME BACK! We hope everyone had a great summer break. We have four new teachers and they are:
Ms. Leah Amonett is teaching 2nd grade.
Ms. Emily Bilbrey is teaching 5th and 6th grade math, reading,
and language arts.
Ms. Sally Pendergrass is teaching 1st grade.
Ms. Mindy Sidwell is teaching 1st grade.
We had two teachers to change positions:
Ms. Julia Barber went from 1st grade to 3rd grade.
Ms. Jamie Evans went from 1st grade to 2nd grade.
We have three new educational assistants:
Ms. Faith Reagan is working in grades 5-8.
Ms. Kathy Vitatoe is working in grades 5-8.
Ms. Danielle Sells is working in kindergarten.
Student/Parent Handbooks will be passed out during the 1st full week of school. A few changes to look for are the following: the new cell phone policy, the new textbook replacement policy, and the severe weather lockdown procedures. Please read through the Handbook with your child/children and return the designated parent/student signed sheet to school.
The State Curriculum Standards have changed for the 2009-2010 academic school year. Therefore, you may notice some changes in your child’s/children’s schoolwork. Teachers have spent a considerable amount of time over the summer getting prepared for changes the new standards have brought. It is extremely important that students are not absent unless absolutely necessary. Those who would like to view the State Curriculum Standards can do so on the Tennessee Department of Education Website at www.state.tn.us/education/ and click on Educators/Administrators then click on Curriculum/Standards.
