Principal's Message

Hello Firebird Families,

Welcome back to our 2017-18 school year!  It has been great to see each and every one of you back on our campus or if you are new to our community, to welcome you for the first time.  As you can see, we have been under a bit of construction over the summer and this construction will be continuous throughout the year.  Our summer renovations included new carpet/paint for all of our classrooms and library, new playground equipment, new technology (all classrooms are now wireless), new flooring in our cafeteria, and the beginning phase of our new parking lot.  In addition to our classroom updates, we will also be adding a few buildings, which will contain our Kid Space and Head Start programs as well as new classrooms for Music, P.E., Art, and Band/Strings.   Also we will be reconstructing our Admin building and cafeteria.  We are thrilled about all of our exciting new additions! 

While we are excited about our new additions and changes to our school, we realize that adjusting to the systems we have put in place as a result of this construction has required patience on your part.  I extend to each and every one of you my sincere thanks for your patience during drop off/pick up and for following the new processes we have in place.  Here a few reminders that will assist with a smoother transition.  1.  We have one entrance with 2 lanes to drive into when entering our campus.  The right lane is the drop-off/pick-up lane, and the left lane is the passing/visitor parking lane.  If you choose the left lane, you must park your car either in visitor parking, or use this lane as a passing lane.  This is not a drop off lane.  In order to drop off/pick up your child in your car, you must remain in the right lane.  2.  When you are picking up your student(s), please post a sign in your front windshield that states the name of your student(s) and grade…this will assist with quicker pick up.  3.  As a result of the construction, we are using one gate for all students to dismiss from.  Space is limited.  Please leave room at the gate for students to come out safely, and wait in the locations that are coned off as parent sections.  4.  Remember, if you would like an alternative to using our new parking area, you may always use the parking lot across the street. 

Once again, we would like to welcome you all back for our 2017-18 school year!  We are looking forward to a great year together and to apply our mission of R.eaching E.very M.ind to be the best, expect the best, and get the best. 

Your grateful and proud principal, 

Amanda Wilber
