  •     New This Year - Our school will be following the Board of Education Wellness Policy 5405 which focuses on  healthy eating habits and physical activity. Last year we began preparing fresh foods in our cafeteria for all students to enjoy during breakfast and lunch. Also, a 20 minute recess time will continue on a daily basis when weather permits.    Starting this year, celebrating birthdays in the classroom with cake, ice cream, candy and other sugar filled items will be eliminated. In an effort to make the most of the instructional day, birthday celebrations will not be allowed during the school day.

Please click the link below to see the Classroom Supply Lists for your child's class for the 2015-2016 School Year:
Every minute in school matters.
Remember: Student Success begins with Attendance.
Regular school attendance develops habits of punctuality, self-discipline and responsibility in students. Students who attend school regularly generally achieve high grades, enjoy school more and are more employable after leaving school.  
To contact someone about Student Attendance, please call 254-3110
and ask for Angela Smith, Parent Liaison.
Help School No. 7 increase our Daily Attendance Rate to 95% and Reach our Goals of Excellence.  Our overall school attendance went up 2% last year.  Let's keep this going!!! 
Any student this year with Perfect Attendance will be included in an End of the Year Party and invited to our Year End Celebration at Altitude Trampoline Park.  To be invited you must have 0 unexcused and 0 excused absences.  That means attending ALL 182 days of school.      
You can do it! 
Stay healthy by eating balanced meals, washing your hands as often as possible, getting 9-11 hours of sleep each night and having consistent daily routines that allow you time to complete your school work each night.
  Parents/Guardians:  Please get to know the staff at school including teachers, administrators, support staff, secretaries, the parent liaison and bus driver.  This will assist in keeping you aware of any issues that your child may be facing and can lessen any anxieties your child may have about attending school.  Also, be sure the school has your current address and phone numbers where you can be reached.  Call the Main Office during school hours to have them updated when needed or send in a note with your child.
The Lifelong Impact of Low Attendance
There is a direct link between high absenteeism and low academic achievement, with chronic absenteeism
(2 absences or more a month) being the single strongest predictor of graduation rates.
The Cost of Low Attendance Includes:
  • Lower Test Scores
  • Lower GPA/Grades
  • Reduced Graduation Rates
  • Lower Paying Jobs
  • Higher Reliance on Welfare Support
  • Increased Likelihood of Living in Poverty
  • Poorer Health


Students Report 9:00 a.m.
Dismissal Begins At 3:30 p.m.
