It is important to be respectful when you or someone you know is being bullied so that it doesn’t keep happening. All of you have the power to stop bullying. Help your friends, and help yourself. You can make a difference. Stopping bullying begins with all of us!

Bob Marley, famous Jamaican reggae singer, wrote, "The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively."

Special Announcements 

Please remember to come to school everyday and on time; and maybe you can win one of the great prizes in our attendance raffle!  If you are a STEAM Team member, please make sure to line up on the blacktop after school, so Mrs. Wood can give you your assignments.     

Remember, Safety First!
  • On your way to and from school remember to use all crosswalks, obey all traffic signals, and watch out for one another.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus.
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, you freeze, wait for a teacher to blow his or her whistle, and walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, you are to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until a teacher says that you may get up to line up.
  • Please remember to pick up after yourself after you eat breakfast, snack, and lunch.  Mr. Larios does not want to pick up after you!
  • At the end of the day, please leave the campus quickly and either walk home or wait in front of the office for you parents.  If your ride is not there, please wait at the front of the school patiently and quietly for your ride.
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember, to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
