K-9 Connections for Veterans

Heather Armelino

On behalf of the  Mistletoe school community, I want to congratulate you and your children! Our school was recently recognized as a 2017 - 2018 Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll School for our high achievement and student success! The Honor Roll program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes.

The 2017 - 2018 ERP Honor Roll utilizes public school student achievement data to identify successful schools and districts. Our school stands above others in the state because of our demonstrated ability to get students to grade level achievement and beyond. Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. 

We did not apply for this award. Our results led them to us! Because of our accomplishment, we will be featured on the ERP Honor Roll website and a banner has been designed for us to hang proudly at our school.

We are thankful for the hard work of our students and teachers here at school name. This recognition is a testament to the sustained focus on academic results and commitment to student success that our school and parent community have shown over the years.  

Again, congratulations and let’s keep up the great work!

As the weather gets warmer, you might want to review the district dress code policy below as a family.  Thanks for your support!

DRESS CODE: It is the responsibility of the District to ensure an environment that promotes learning.  Students must be neat, clean, well-groomed, and ready to learn. Clothing and hairstyles must be appropriate and not interfere with instruction.  In the best interest of children and the school, students must adhere to the following:

  • Clothing shall cover undergarments and torso at all times and may not have holes or rips above the mid-thigh.  

  • Garments may not be too tight or too revealing.

  • Dresses and skirts shall be at least mid-thigh in length.

  • Shorts must have a minimum 3” inseam.

  • Pajamas are allowed only on designated spirit days or special events planned by school administration.

  • Safe footwear must be worn at all times and allow for participation in PE.  Flip flops, sandals without a back strap, and skate shoes are not permitted.

  • Hats may be worn outdoors for sun protection or warmth.

  • For safety reasons, hanging chains, spiked belts/wristbands, or sharp, heavy jewelry are not permitted.

  • No clothing, jewelry or personal items that bear statements or pictures that are disrespectful, obscene or profane, advocate illegal, sexual, or violent behavior, or refer to death, alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, violence, racism, gang-related, or make sexual innuendos will be allowed.

  • Face painting, unnatural hair coloring, or body piercing that cause a disruption or safety concern are not allowed.  Hair may not be sprayed with any coloring that would drip when wet.

Administration will determine whether or not any of the above guidelines are being violated and ultimately a distraction or potential distraction to the learning environment at school.
