2022-23 YEARBOOK COVER CONTEST

Our annual Yearbook Cover Contest will be kicking off soon. Check your email, weekly newsletter and our Facebook “Coyote” Pack group for more information coming soon. We will start accepting submissions after Labor Day!


GO FAR RUNNING CLUB

Coaches: Kelly Holloway, Taylor Lewis, Denise Herman, Necolby Burt, Jennifer Kennedy

WHAT IS A GO FAR CLUB?

GO FAR is an 8- to 10-week running club for children that promotes physical activity, healthy eating, and good character. Through the GO FAR curriculum, coaches teach children to set and reach goals and complete a 5K road race. The GO FAR Curriculum is:


  • Time-tested. GO FAR now reaches more than 8,000 children in eight states annually. Most programs repeat season after season.

  • User-friendly. Teachers, coaches, parents, and volunteers can easily lead a group using the Coordinators Manual, complete with 2 semesters (36 lesson plans) plus optional activities.

  • Comprehensive. Each session incorporates lessons about nutrition, character education, and physical fitness.

  • Affordable. We keep costs to a minimum with a one-time start-up and curriculum fee and per-student race fees for shirts and medals.

  • Inclusive. Girls and boys of all abilities can successfully complete the training program. Families are also encouraged to join in their children’s training.


If interested, please fill out the interest survey form and a coach will be in touch with you soon.


FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH

  • Remember that if you qualify to apply, you need to pick up your application from the school office.

  • Complete the application and return it to the front office for review.

  • Continue providing lunch for your child until you receive a confirmation regarding eligibility and the date your student/s free or reduced lunch will begin.

  • You can either send a packed lunch from home or you can order from MyHotLunchbox (see information below)

  • **Please be mindful that it will take approximately 2 weeks to review and process your application from the time you submit it to the Front Office.**

CARLINE TIPS

  • You can begin lining up for the afternoon car line at 2:45 (12:45 on Wednesday) which is 30 minutes prior to 3:15 dismissal. DO NOT arrive before then. Anyone who lines up before that will be asked to leave campus and come back. We need the driveway to be open for safety reasons, emergency vehicles, and early check outs. When you begin lining up, please stop at the cones and leave the far left lane of the driveway open.

  • Students MUST enter the car on the passenger side and drivers and passengers MUST stay in the car. If you need to help them buckle, please park in the parking lot or pull around and park in the field in the front of the building.

  • Unbuckle students as you enter the car line so they are ready to hop out of the car quickly.

  • If you go to ‘overflow’ (just past zone 1), please turn on your hazards so cars behind you know you are stopping and they can go around.
