Please help us by collecting box tops and sending them to school.
We are aware that a constant line of communication must be maintained between the classroom teacher and the parent to create a successful student. However, we are unable to permit conferences and “peek-ins” during daily instructional time. The teachers belong to the students from 8:00a.m. - 3:00p.m. Please arrange a mutually convenient time by sending a note to your child’s teacher or by calling the school at (205) 231-3440 to arrange an appointment.
The most fundamental element for school success is that children consistently come to school on time for the full day.
Children who are chronically absent in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the third grade. Students who cannot read at grade level by the end of third grade are four times more likely than proficient readers to drop out of high school.
