Dear Families -

Welcome back for a new year in 2018!  Thanks to our families, PTA, and Student Council for a successful Food and Gift drive in December. 

This month we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  In our classrooms we regularly utilize activities to celebrate the many cultures, talents, and traditions of families and our community.  You’re invited to our assemblies listed below. We hope you will join us in modeling and promoting respect, kindness, and fairness. 

Our School Board recently decided to place two levy propositions on the February 13 ballot. Please see information provided in this newsletter and please vote.

Our Student Council is active this year under the supervision of Tricia and Maren Norton. Thanks to our officers, executive council, and class reps, we have spirit days and other activities scheduled.

Safety is our #1 priority. While we believe our building and campus are safe from unwelcome visitors, we are committed to making every effort to ensure our students are safe each and every day. As a reminder, entry to the building is allowed through the main entrance only and we require all visitors to sign-in and wear a pass each time you visit.  We appreciate our frequent volunteers and visitors; please check-in and wear a pass if only for a few minutes. Thanks.

Thanks for our continued partnership in 2018 and we look forward to seeing you soon.

David Tadlock, Principal

Tadlock Tip

For students and parents alike, I encourage exercise routines especially in January and February. Get out and walk for 15 minutes daily, take bike rides, swim, or keep your commitment to the gym – and take the kids. I walk or run for at least 15 minutes every morning and play golf each Sunday.  It’s a lot easier to get outside starting in March, but January & February are really important months to be active and model outside (screen free) activities for our children.


Communication:  We are committed to regular communication and information, and we rely heavily on email and websites. We encourage you to set your inbox and browser for easy access to information. It’s helpful to keep Office Secretary Jill updated about family phone numbers and email addresses.
