Principal's Message

  • Ms. Cottrell

    Dear Parents-

    This trimester, we will be doing conferences a little differently. Instead of parents going to the MPR and waiting in line to meet teachers, we will schedule appointments for parents to see teachers on a first come, first serve basis. Parents can sign up for 5 minute conference slots. If parents need more than 5 minutes to conference, please email the teacher to set up a meeting outside of conferences. Parents are encouraged to contact teachers with questions or concerns as they arise, and need not wait for conference time to express their concerns.  Teachers are available for individual conferences year-round. Please click here to view the instructions in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic. 

    We look forward to seeing you at P/T Conferences!

    Principal Cottrell

    Per Iowa law, at the start of the 2017-18 school year there will be two immunizations required for 7th grade entry. These immunizations are Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis/whooping cough) and meningococcal (to prevent meningitis, a bacteria that infects the brain, blood and spinal cord).

  • Message to the Community

    This weekend, much of the world’s attention was focused on an effort by the federal government to impose restrictions on the ability of immigrants and refugees to come to the United States. From protestors at airports and on the streets to lawyers and judges in courtrooms, there was a swift reaction by many in support of immigrants and refugees.
