5 STAR Family Event

Hello amazing Spartan parent volunteers,


We are in the planning period for our upcoming 5 STAR Family Volunteer event where we recognize and honor your hard work for our students and staff.  At the beginning of the year, each family received a 5 STAR Family Volunteer Passport to log hours volunteered throughout the year.  Sometimes teachers manage this and sometimes individual parents working between several classrooms manage their own passport.  If you have volunteered 10 hours of service and want to be included in our thank you event, please turn in volunteer passports (signed by staff) to our office.  If you need a new passport to have your volunteer hours recognized, please also come by our office to have your child’s teacher sign off for you.  Thank you for pouring into your child’s education and making a difference for our school community!

A Message to Parents . . .

Hello Spartan families,


Recent senseless school shootings remind all of us to be vigilant in maintaining our safe learning environment and school community for our children.  I am saddened by the unnecessary loss of life and I’m heartbroken for the parents who went home devastated by their family’s loss.  As a school community we are re-committing our efforts to provide a welcoming and yet safe environment for children, staff and parents.


During the school day our only point of entrance and exit is through our office.  We require a sign in from visitors and a brief conversation with office staff to determine the visit’s purpose.  Visitors should also wear a visitor sticker identifying themselves via the sticker to staff and students.  If our staff is unfamiliar with the visitor we will ask for identification and make sure the visitor has a right to be on campus.  Please remember our District policy in giving teaching staff 24 hour notice before visiting a classroom.  All of our teachers appreciate our parents, and they will be much more prepared to possibly discuss progress, or provide feedback, or prepare tasks with prior notice.


We so appreciate our wonderful parent community.  Your volunteer hours and positive interactions with our children enrich our students’ lives and support teaching and learning in the classroom.  We believe that a strong relationship between your home and our school is a recipe for student success.  Thank you for assisting us in maintaining a welcoming school environment and for helping us to ensure all of our students are safe and ready to learn.
