Student Highlight
Student Council Food Drive
I was so proud of the amount of food our students donated to the Parker Task Force! Over the course of two weeks students donated 1566 cans of food!  Our second graders brought in the most food with fourth grade in a close second.  We thank student council for organizing this event and all of the families that participated.

Report Cards
We are excited to share the progress your child has made since the beginning of the school year!  You will be able to access your child’s report card on Thursday, December 18 via your parent portal.  Complete the following steps to access this information: Log into parent portal; Click on Select a Student; Choose your child; Click on Reports; Click on EPR

You will notice this year that students did not receive a grade for technology. While all students continue to have technology five days a week, we altered the curriculum two days a week to allow students additional time to practice fundamental skills.  This change allows students to develop a strong foundation in technology basics.  In addition, the technology teacher is working collaboratively with classroom teachers to plan technology activities that can be implemented in the classroom.  

Drop Off & Pick Up - Safety Reminders
We have asked the Parker Police Department to help us monitor the following drop off and pick up procedures to maintain safety for all students:

·      Cross only at designated cross walks.
·      Remain in car line (do not swerve around cars).
·      Keep your cell phone off.

We thank you for your cooperation!

Promoting Health & Wellness
As we work towards promoting student wellness in all areas, we want to ensure our students know how to develop and utilize healthy habits, self-care and coping skills. This month we encourage students to draw awareness to the many options they have to deal with challenges they may encounter in life.  Based on students’ development levels, teachers will be exploring this topic in the classroom with their students.
