Welcome to the 2nd Semester Wildcat Families! 

Welcome to the Third Quarter of the School year.  We started this  quarter by celebrating our 1st Semester (1st and 2nd Quarter) of our students’ learning with the First Semester Awards Assembly in mid-February.  Several students earned awards in Citizenship/Leadership  in each grade level.   Nine students were awarded with the WOW Award -Wildly Outstanding Wildcat.  This award  is given by classroom teachers, PE and Music teachers and is strictly about how that student WOW’d their teacher.  

Please remember that school attendance is critically important to your child’s success.  Colds and flus are going around and your greatest defense against illness is  getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, washing hands often and eating nutritious foods.  According to KidsHealth.org, children ages 6-13 need between 9 to 12 hours of sleep each night.  If you take a planned trip, please contact your child’s teacher for school work they will miss.

Just around the corner is our Missoula Children’s Theater with performances on Saturday, March 2 with two performances at 2pm and 4pm.   This year’s  performance is Robin Hood.  

On Thursday, March 7th we will have a super fun Family Reading night, please join us for some learning games and prizes where we have some fun with Dr. Seuss characters and stories.   

On Friday, March 15th we will host our Student Led Conferences.  This is a wonderful day where children and their families come to school and the child leads the conferences.  It’s a special day that empowers the child to show their families how they take ownership of their learning.

School Meal Program 

It is very important for our families to fill out a free/reduced meal form either online or via a paper form that will be sent home the first day of school.  This program could possibly help offset your cost for eating meals at school, and also help provide funding to our school for important programs such as reading and math support.
