Dear James E. Moss Elementary Families and Scholars,
Welcome back to the 2022-2023 school year!
We are so excited to have our Moss scholars return for another great year of learning. This school year brings exciting changes to our school staff, with many new teachers and support staff joining us. Our school community is focused on kindness to support scholars to be persistent and persevere.
Office Hours: Starting on August 1st at 9am. We will have regular summer hours the week of August 1st between 9-2 to help with new student registration and other questions. All Kindergarten scholars must be registered before August 3rd. Every Kindergarten student must complete the state assessment on Wednesday August 3rd at their scheduled appointment time.
Back-to-School Night, Registration and BBQ Dinner: Join us on August 11 from 4-7. Every returning student must have a legal guardian sign registration paperwork before they are placed onto a class list. Legal guardians MUST bring ID to complete this required paperwork. Once families have competed required paperwork you will find out your student’s teacher, meet them and enjoy a BBQ dinner!
Important: This school year there is no automatic free breakfast and lunch to students, as the federal funding for that program is gone. Families MUST apply for this program by completing the free and reduced lunch form at www.myschoolapps.com or in person at Back-to-School Night.
Interested in supporting our scholars? We have several hourly job openings, ask in the office if you are interested. Moss School Community Council would love new members to help share in program and funding decisions. Our amazing PTA is looking for support through simple membership or volunteering. More information available at Back-to-School Night.
