Thanks to all of you for a great first week back! I saw so many of you out and about, supporting kids, building community, diving into learning! There was a great energy in the air as we welcomed kids back to school. A special shout out to all of you who have worked to support our new staff members, as well. It was a great way to kick off the school year – let’s keep the momentum going!!!
Say Cheese! It’s Picture Day!
Here are the directions for picture day!
Please lead your students to the small gym entrance near the outdoor basketball courts.
- Have students line up in two lines by last name, A-K on the left and L-Z on the right.

- If we are running ahead of schedule, we may ask you to come a little early.

Early Release – Wednesday
This Wednesday will be our first early release. This will be a building-led early release, meaning all staff will be here at Frontier. Since the district released the newly updated calendar, there has confusion about early release days. All early release days remain the same. You can see these days posted on page 2 of the Staff Need to Know document.
This Wednesday, we will provide a couple of updates regarding next week’s Character Strong kickoff, but will be spending a majority of the time working on unit-planning. As stated in August, we have a goal of creating a building-wide curriculum map. We will also be having some unit-plan share out days, as well. Many of you are either shoring up your first unit plan and need time for this, or are working on fleshing out your next unit. Please bring all of your materials to the Media Center to do this work, as we will all be working in the same location.
This week, device deployment will begin in the Media Center. Humanities classes will check their devices in each week. Humanities teachers, you should have a packet in your mailbox from last week that indicates whether students have signed their Acceptable Use Agreement and Device Issuance Agreement. Both are required to be signed before students can receive a device. All students from last year will be good, any new students – and all 6th grade students – must have their parents sign off on these in Skyward. It is done electronically and can be completed in minutes.
The schedule for device deployment can be found here.
Open House – Monday, September 24th
As mentioned, our Open House was rescheduled to Monday, September 24th from 6-7:30. Postcards were mailed home to families describing the event. As usual, we ask that students attend only with a parent/guardian. Frontier Spirit Wear will be available in the student center throughout the evening. We are asking for students/families to begin in their 1st period class. In 1st period classes, families will be provided with the schedule below:
You will have 10 minutes with each of your class periods to share a bit about your class, yourself, and connect with families. When students/families attend the “Student Center” time, admin will talk about PBIS Expectations and Character Strong.
Have you seen them around the building? Thank you for taking the time to cover these with students.
Did you get a copy of the Learning Environment and Technology Posters for your classroom?? We heard from a couple of you saying they did not receive one. If we missed you, please send Marshall an email and he will place them in your box.
If you notice an area that we’ve missed or a space that could use a poster, let us know.
On Monday, we are meeting with NWPBIS for a final time as we shore up our Tier 1 Intervention Planning.
