Upcoming Events

Camp Animal Care
One of our teachers and two of our students spent two weeks of their summer volunteering to help kids and animals in our community. Madelyn Shedd, 8th grade teacher and sponsor of Wildcats for a Cause community service club, helped develop Camp Animal Care, a camp to help rising 3rd-6th graders learn how to treat animals humanely and to help the homeless animals at our shelter find forever homes. Mrs. Shedd also served as a counselor for two weeks this past summer, along with two of her club members, rising 8th graders Kayla Swain and Lauren Miller. Kayla and Lauren taught campers how to make crafts to comfort the shelter pets and to remember how to treat animals humanely.

Tdap Immunization for Seventh Graders

Rising seventh graders must have the Tdap vaccination or they must submit an objector’s statement prior to the first day of school, Tuesday, August 19, 2014, for students to attend school. Parents must provide their child’s school with documentation of the Tdap immunization, a religious exemption, or a medical exemption. Parents are encouraged to submit document as soon as possible. If documentation is not provided before the first day of school, the student will not be allowed to start school. The Tdap vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough). State Law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination beginning with the 2013-14 school year.
