School Improvement Survey

As we approach the winter break, we are trying to collect a lot of input from our students, parents, faculty, and staff for school improvement.  We would like to get as many parents as possible to give their feedback on our culture and climate through a survey that is available on our web page.  The survey will only take a few minutes of your time, and will provide great information as we continue to plan for improvement within the school! 

The survey is available at the following link:  http://eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/45609/30057

Eclipse Update for Middle & High School Students Only

Solar Eclipse Viewing Update 8/16/2017 for Trimble Co. Middle & High School Students (only)

Our Solar Eclipse Viewing excitement quickly came to an abrupt halt yesterday afternoon for our secondary students when we received an emailed notification from our "Eclipse Sunglass" Vendor that stated they could not guarantee the authenticity of the sunglasses that we had purchased for our middle and high school students (Eclipse glasses for elementary students were donated from the local library).

Not only is this disappointing news but we quickly discovered as close as we are to the eclipse, there are not enough glasses available to buy in bulk for our students. However, we didn’t want to prevent any secondary students that have eclipse glasses from participating in the event. Therefore, if you want your middle or high school child to be able to participate in the outdoor viewing of the eclipse on August 21st, you will need to send in a permission form and a pair of eclipse glasses for your child to use during the eclipse. ONLY students that return a permission form and bring a pair of eclipse glasses will be permitted to go outside to view the eclipse. As stated in previous correspondence, for those that do not go outside for the viewing, alternative educational eclipse activities will be held inside during this time period and the eclipse will also be able to be viewed safely on media outlets within the school.

This change affects middle and high school students only. Elementary students will continue on as previously stated.

Permission Required to view Solar Eclipse eclipse

ECLIPSE NEWS...

On August 21, 2017, for the first time since 1918, a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the United States. Our District will not be in the direct path of totality for the solar eclipse but will still get to experience this historic event. The Schools have been busy planning to make this event a unique learning experience for our students.

On August 21, 2017, all District students (with your permission) will be allowed to go outside and participate in activities and view the period of near totality (“Solar Eclipse Viewing”). As always, student safety is our top concern.
