Dear Parents and Guardians:

 ·        We wanted to share this note from our Environmental Services Department:

I'm sure by now we have all seen the new signage identifying pedestrian crossings on Central Campus. It is very important, with the congestion we face at start and dismissal times, at all of our campuses that we pay attention to these signs and remind students that on or off property, it is important to follow all traffic postings and only cross at posted pedestrian crosswalks. 

 We will also be posting speed limit signs soon. Please understand that this 15 mile per hour limit will be the top speed when there is little or no pedestrian traffic at obvious times during the day. Parents, students, and staff will have to use appropriate caution during high traffic times. 

 It is our hope that these new additions will help to keep us all safe when travelling by any means on our campuses. Again welcome back and all the best for the rest of the school year,

In the last few years, we have seen a downward trend in our membership numbers.  We know this isn’t because our parents and staff members care any less about promoting a quality education and making a difference in the lives of our children.  We currently have 515 members, which is up a little bit from last year, but we know with the size of our district that we can do better! 

 Please take a couple of minutes (we promise, it is very short) to take this brief survey  {  (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MWQ57LL }   to give us your thoughts and insights into PTSA membership.   Being a member does not obligate you to anything, other than showing support for our school community.

Hello parents of the class of 2020 (freshman)!
 
Yesterday the class kicked off the Yankee Candle fundraiser – a fundraiser to help the class accumulate funds in order to hold future class events at a reasonable price.  The class officers chose Yankee Candle because it is a friendly company with a quality product.  We also love that the company allows students to create an online account and sell to friends and family online if they wish.  Yankee will even mail purchases to those who do not live nearby! 
 
All the information that the students need in order to sell is on the information sheet in the packet.  Students will collect orders and checks/money from now until March 17.  They can turn in their orders to their English teachers.  However, if you or your student have any questions or issues during the sale, please contact me, their class adviser.  We are hoping for a successful sale and thank you for your support.
 
Thank you!
