Student General Information
Each student is expected to take proper care of books that belong to the school. Damaged or lost books must be paid for so they can be replaced. Textbooks, whether belonging to the school or on loan from the State, are to be covered at all times.
Student Council is an organization that works for the betterment of the school and student body as well as the community. To be considered for an office on the Student Council, the student must:
-Be in middle school
-Show exemplary behavior (no I’s on the Personal Development section of the report card)

Class Representatives, in grades K-8 are also a part of the Student Council. Students that are eligible are elected by their classmates.
Tests are administered on a regular basis. Multiple assessments are given to students via projects, participation (individual and group), exit slips, lab reports and school STEM Fair. These and other papers will be sent home by the teacher for parent review, signature and return. The Middle School sends home tests/assessments via an envelope system sent home on a weekly basis.
