School Culture Survey
We want to know what you think about your child's school! Each year, we send out a school culture survey to parents, staff members, and students in grades 3-12. The data from the surveys help us improve student relationships, learning conditions, and the school's overall environment.

You can access the parent survey by  clicking here  or by copying and pasting this link into your browser: .

This survey is anonymous and voluntary. The more questions you answer, the more valuable information you will provide to us. We appreciate you taking the time to answer the questions (about 10-15 minutes.) 

Please complete the survey as soon as possible. This survey will close on November 5.

How to Help Kids Deal with Cyberbullying
In today's digital age, cyberbullying is something that many children and teens deal with. As a parent, do you know how to help your child if he or she is dealing with cyberbullying?

In this article from the Child Mind Institute, you'll get answers to questions about what you should do and how to know if you need to intervene if your child is getting cyberbullied.

Having open conversations with your child about online and digital behavior is an important first step. Make sure you start there so you can be aware if your child is being bullied online.

Halloween Fun
Many of our schools celebrated Halloween with costumes, parades and parties. Here are a few photos of the fun around the district!
