Welcome back to school! September is the month that our students begin forging new relationships with their teachers and perhaps a new friendship or two as they meet new faces. September is also the kick-off to our focus on routines and safety: in classrooms, on the playground, on the bus, walking, bicycling, and staying home alone. This focus might translate to dinner conversations around the table about how we keep ourselves safe in stores, parking lots, in the kitchen, etc.
Here are September events, that go along with our teaching routines. Parent Information Nights are a great way to stay informed!
September 13th 4th and 5th Grade Parent Info Night, 5:30-6:15 in your child’s classroom
September 14th No Kindergarten; parent meetings
August Birthday Table, during school lunch

Hope to see you soon!
We are hard at work here at school preparing classroom spaces to welcome back our penguins, as well as greet our NEWEST penguins, next Thursday, August 30th 4:00-6:00. Please come drop off school supplies, say hi to friends, purchase your planners, deposit lunch money, and join the PTA! We are so excited to see YOU!
The beginning of the school year is nearly upon us, and we want to be sure you have access to these documents when you need them, even before school offices open.
- Our 2018-19 CSD Calendar now reflects secondary late start dates. On late start dates, middle and high schools will start 2 hours later than usual. Please Note: Next year, we will no longer be sending reminder emails, phone calls, and texts on late start dates to families for two reasons. 1) Frequency: They are now one day at each occurrence, but they occur twice a month and 2) Pattern: They occur every 2nd and 4th Thursday when school is in session with the exception of November, which, we hope, will be easy to remember.
- View our Summer Schedule to learn about opening dates, back-to-school events, and more.
- If your student has a district-issued Chromebook, click here to learn about Summer Care.
- 2018-19 bus pick-up and drop-off schedules will be available online by Monday, August 6.
- Remember, beginning next year, school start times for elementary and secondary schools have changed.
It pains me to post this in the middle of summer, yet I’ve noticed that many stores are already stocking shelves with school supplies. Please see the link above for the most updated list (some stores have outdated lists).
See you all soon!

We had our local marathon man, Micah Snell, and his mom share with our students a book (written by his sister!) and lesson on perseverance. Micah is a 2nd grader at Helen Baller, and just completed his 25th marathon with his dad, Superintendent Jeff Snell. Students asked great questions related to Micah’s assistive technology device and how he communicates with the world.
Our assembly concluded with our awesome vocal and recorder choirs sharing their skills with all of us. Thanks, Mrs. Ray and Mrs. Binder for helping these budding musicians. **photos by Charity Feb**
