We are excited to see everyone! Here is to a strong start out the gate for quarter 2.

Please remember that you are able to drop Scholars off as early as 7:15 AM, however, breakfast does end at 7:50, so it is important that scholars arrive in Driveline with enough time to pull around and get into the gym before breakfast ends.

This is the start to quarter two. Let’s make sure that we are talking to our scholars daily about their homework. Remember, they are able to do iready at home, and we do need them to be doing two lessons a week in math and reading. For our EL language learners, it’s important that they even do more reading, with a goal of 4 a week.

We are grateful for the support and partnership of our families. Report cards will be going home electronically if you did not already receive or hear about your scholars’ grades at parent teacher conferences.

Thank you for your help in setting those important nightly routines and procedures so that scholars get good sleep and are fully ready to engage in learning and breathe FIRE!

Sleep tight, dragon families. See you tomorrow!!!
