  •     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.

 Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back to School No. 7!  Everyone on our staff is so excited to have our students return!  We have been busy preparing activities and lessons to engage and excite your child, as we help them experience and learn new material. 
Once again this year students will be wearing uniforms.   The uniforms will be tan, black or blue trousers, shorts, skirts or dresses.   The tops will be yellow, white, or blue with no writing.  
 Please remember there is no supervision before 9:00 a.m.  For the safety of your children, students that walk or are dropped off are not to arrive prior to 9:00 a.m. every morning.  At 9:00 a.m., all students will enter the building.   Student schedules and material lists will be coming your way in the near future. 
Our vision for this coming school year is to provide your child with three things that have not changed.  Your child will be in a safe environment, we are going to focus on helping each and every student be successful, and our staff will work as one cohesive team to get the job done.  Our new Mission Statement is “School Seven’s mission is to develop students that practice safe habits, work hard, exhibit academic growth and are respectful and responsible citizens.   Our Vision Statement is “SOAR to Succeed!”
We look forward to working with you and your children in the coming year!  Sincerely, it is both a privilege and an honor to have the opportunity to work with your children and play such an important role in their lives as they learn and grow into successful young adults.

Please remember these dates for upcoming events at School 7:

  • Back to School Orientation for new families - Thursday, August 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Open House – Thursday, September 24 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Thank you very much for your time, support, and the opportunity to work with your child.


Mr. Lincoln

Ms. Roberts
Ms. Markman
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 the Parent Liaison or Robyn Roberts, Assistant Principal.
Help School No. 7 increase our Daily Attendance Rate to 95% and Reach our Goals of Excellence.  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
What: This winter our school will offer flu (influenza) vaccine for our students. There are two forms of flu vaccine – the nose spray and the shot. We will give most children the nose spray, which does not hurt. These are the same vaccines that your child’s doctor’s office gives.

Why: Getting the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent the flu.

When: Look for a pink packet in your child’s backpack later this fall. The clinic will be held in December or January during the school day. You will be notified 4 weeks before the clinic is scheduled with a specific date.

Where: The flu clinic will be held at school.


Students Report 9:00 a.m.
Dismissal Begins At 3:25 p.m.
