Principal's Message... 

Now that the initial excitement of the first few weeks of the school year is starting to wane for some, it is important to identify what are the benchmarks we should be using to measure student academic success and keep our focus on the primary reason we are at school. Much of what I hear and see is positive; students are focused, they are bringing to this year what they were successful with last year, and teachers are finding your children eager and ready to learn. But now is the time to provide support for those who might be starting to struggle.

Over the next couple of weeks, Edline reports will be critical for you to review. We will send home what are called "deficiencies,' or reports of students who are already struggling significantly in one or more classes. These will be followed up by parent-teacher conferences in late October. The goal is for parents and teachers to share information about student success, struggles, or concerns. Please use the tools that we provide to help that conversation along.

This week, there are some noteworthy opportunities for families to connect with the school, teachers, and each other. On Tuesday, I will host the first of a series of Principal's Coffees in the Deal Conference Room. Please come for this informal conversation - but also feel free to wait until another one further down the road as I will be scheduling one once a month. Our new 8th Grade Parents Night will include sessions on history day, science fair, writing, math, online high school applications, and living with 8th graders. This evening is in addition to our later High School Night, as we felt that there was a lot that parents wanted and needed to know in the 8th grade.

Finally, the PTA is sponsoring Family Movie Night on Friday at 6:30. Like last year, we will host it in the cafeteria; feel free to bring a dinner basket and a comfy blanket. Last year we watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid; I have yet to choose Friday's movie but be assured it will be a family movie for all. There will be an ice cream truck ready to dispense free ice cream and there will be free popcorn and hot dogs as well. This is just a fun way to end the week - I hope to see many of you there!

Take care.

Immunization News 


Thanks to the parents who have been sending in immunization information. Please continue to send in  documentation every time your student receives new immunizations. It is important to have all students immunized to prevent the spread of childhood diseases.


All 6th graders 11 years or older must have the following:

Tdap (tetanus, diptheria and pertussis)

Meningococcal (meningitis)  

HPV (human papilloma virus)


For the HPV vacine, three doses are required for females or you may complete an opt out form.


All immunization forms must be stamped, signed and dated before the Immunization Registry will accept them.

Important Changes Made to DCPS Attendance Protocol


1) The Office of Youth Engagement now identifies students who accrue 10 unexcused absences as "chronically truant."


2) Students must be referred to court once they have reached 15 unexcused absences.


3) Students must be at school 80% of the entire school day in order to be considered "present".   



The only excusable reasons for a student's late arrival and/or absence from school are:

  • Illness or medical cause (a doctor's note is needed for 5 or more absences)
  • Medical or dental appointment 
  • Death in the student's immediate family
  • Summoned to attend in judicial proceeding 
  • Religious holiday
  • Lawful exclusion or expulsion from school
  • Failure of DC to provide transportation  
  • Emergency or circumstances approved by LEA

In order to be acknowledged as "excused" the student must provide a note to the attendance counselor (written or electronically) from the parent and/or guardian relaying at least one of the reasons listed above.  


If you have any questions please contact the Welcome Center and ask to speak to the Attendance Counselor, Ms. Johnson.
