It's time for the Illinois 5-Essentials Parent Survey! I have shared the link on Facebook as well as through an email. Please take time to fill out the parent survey. This is an opportunity for you to tell us about your experiences with us. We use these results to guide planning and instruction and to generate ways that we may better serve you and your student. Click on the link below to start the survey. When it asks for the county please type in Douglas County. We must have at least 20% of our parents fill this survey out to get results. Currently we are at 10%. If you haven’t filled it out please take a few minutes to do so. If you need access to a computer please come into the office and we will set you up on a chromebook within the building to take it.

Boys basketball season is in full swing. This week you can catch the boys in action at Lovington on Monday, December 16. Games start at 6pm. Come out and support your Knights. We will be announcing our 8th grade players and cheerleaders at this game. 

7th Grade Girls volleyball practice has started. The girls practice every day after school in Atwood. 

Drop-Off in the morning/Pick up in the Afternoon
Please remember when you are dropping students off in the morning that it is a "drive-through" system. Please do not park in the middle of the drive so people cannot get through. If you are needing to park to get out of the car or watch students go into the building you will need to park in a parking spot and let them walk in from there. 
A reminder that we do not want any cars entering or leaving the East parking lot until after 3:35. If you are picking up your child after school we ask that you park on the road and either wait in your car or walk up to meet your child. This is for the safety of our students. Please follow these rules so we can ensure the safety of our kids at dismissal.  

K-5-Keep our building clean. We have seen a lot of students picking up trash around the school. We encourage you to keep doing this so we can reduce the amount of trash around the building. Keep working together on this goal to earn a Winter Party in January when we come back from break. 
6-8- Thank you to the students that are walking on the right side of the hallway. It is very helpful when you are using 0 voices while traveling throughout the building. By doing this you are setting a great example for our younger students. Please continue to choose these behaviors outside of the Junior High Hallway then you will earn a game day in January when we come back from break. 
Our Cool Tool for December is going to focused on Respect: Respect means you have regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, or traditions of others. This week we ask that you are observant of how respectful you are to your family members at home.
