Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout-outs. Please check back often, and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Welcome to Our New Website

We are pleased to welcome you to our new and improved website. We are very grateful to the many district and school staff members who worked together to envision a website that reflects how much we care about our students. Our partnership with School Webmasters has made our vision a reality. We hope you check back in with us often!

PowerSchool

PowerSchool is a great tool to help you stay on top of what’s happening in the classroom. On it you can access student attendance reports, grades, missing assignments, and more. If you are having trouble accessing your account, please contact our technology guru, Renate Cober. If the platform seems to be sluggish or glitches often, be sure you are running the latest versions of Java and Adobe Reader

Study Tips for Your School Child

Do you find it hard to get your son or daughter to study? Would their grades improve if they had better study skills and resources? If you answered yes to either question, we have some helpful tips for you.

GreatSchools.org offers tips to help your child prepare for a successful study session. Simple tips such as how to organize a study space, plan time to study, and having the proper study materials can go a long way toward helping your child be successful. For more detailed information about how develop and practice good study habits, please visit GreatSchools.org.

If you prefer a hands-on approach, you may want to refresh your memory on educational topics your son or daughter is learning. A good place to start is Internet Public Library, which has a wealth of information and research materials you and your teen need to advance learning, such as arts and crafts, nutrition information, and sports. 

For the younger child, studying in the traditional way might not be working. Take a look at Fun Brain for an interactive approach to studying. Don't let the fact that it is full of games discourage you from letting your child go there. Educational games engage your child while reinforcing basic skills in math, reading, science, and more. Even by playing games kids learn—and any kind of learning is good!
