Principal's Message

We encourage every parent to get involved this year by committing to three hours of volunteer service to our school. When we all work together, wonderful things can be accomplished!

 

I would like to wish you a very happy and peaceful holiday season.  It is a wonderful time of year to get together with friends and family to celebrate and be thankful for all of the wonderful people in our lives.  It is also a time for explaining to children that the true gift of the holiday season is giving and caring for others.

 

I genuinely hope that you take time to enjoy the holiday season with your family.  A quote to think about:  May you have the gladness of the holiday season which is hope; the spirit of the holiday season which is peace; and the heart of the holiday season which is love.

 

The last day of school before the holiday break is December 20, 2018.  We will resume school again on Tuesday, January 2, 2019.

 

If you are picking up or dropping off your child, please remember not to park along the red curb in front of the building between the orange cones.  If you need to come in the school, please park your car in the parking stalls and not along the curbs.  Please make sure to slow down in the drop off zone and be aware of children and other cars. This procedure will ensure the safety of the students at Three Peaks Elementary.

The Three Peaks Elementary Preschool parking lot is to be used only for parents of preschool students.  Please do not park your car in their parking lot to pick up or drop off your students.  Thank you.

- Showing families symptoms and illnesses going around school so you can take the best steps to keep your children healthy (all entirely anonymous and aggregated)

- Reducing sick days through early detection of any illness

We hope you will consider participating in this initiative! The more families that participate, the more successful the program will be in keeping our students healthier throughout this school year.

One hundred years from now 
It will not matter 
what kind of car I drove, 
What kind of house I lived in, 
how much money was in my bank account 
nor what my clothes looked like. 
But the world may be a better place because 
I was important in the life of a child.
