    PROMOTE STUDENT AND STAFF WELLNESS

    For two school years, we have focused our energies on improving student and staff wellness through professional development, upgrading spaces to work-out gyms, increasing the safety and security of our schools, hiring additional counselors and changing some of their responsibilities, and adding curricula that addresses methods and strategies for students to manage emotions.  We will continue this focus with supporting Wellness Committees in each school, which consist of school staff who are charged with devising ways to be focused on health and well-being. 

    STUDENT INVOLVEMENT & COMMON LUNCH

    Our schedule was designed to encourage more students to engage in academic enrichment activities and participate in co-curricular programs. Moreover, the schedule provides students the opportunity to grow individually by recognizing ways to self improve during the school day. There are counseling programs, club meetings, coaches meetings and academic enrichment, including reading intervention during the Common Lunch, so there is no excuse to not get involved in school activities or better your outlook. Please take advantage of the numerous opportunities afforded to you during the school day. 

     

    SECURITY UPDATES

     
    If there is ever a need to immediately notify parents/guardians of an emergency situation, we will be utilizing the District webpage, the District Facebook page, and the Alert Calling System. Please make sure the schools have accurate and up-to-date contact information, including address, phone number(s) and e-mail addresses.  

    SCHOOL FACILITY RENOVATIONS

    TRITON was built in 1956, HIGHLAND built ten years later, in 1966, and TIMBER CREEK was built in 2001. We take great pride in our school facilities, both inside and outside, as we believe that the schools should be extremely clean, safe, inviting and a source of pride in the community.  We continue to upgrade our facilities so that our learning environments create conditions that optimize students' experiences. Therefore, this school year, the following facility upgrades are already underway:

    1. Refinish the Highland gymnasium floor.
    2. Re-seal the student parking lot at Timber Creek. 
    3. Continue to upgrade school security features in all three schools.
    4. Complete roof section 3 of 3 at Highland.
    5. Renovate the Athletic Team Rooms at Highland.
    6.  Renovate and expand the Athletic Trainer's Room at Highland.
    7. Renovate new dance studio at Timber Creek.
    8. Continue to monitor and correct any mechanical HVAC issues at Timber Creek. 
    9. Support the Triton Community as they erect Jim Doyle Pavilion.
    10.  Seal the Timber Creek roof section 1 of 3.
