Accreditation

As you know, we had a team in our school from Advanc-Ed this week for our re-accreditation. Our visit went perfectly, and we are looking forward to continuing our accredited status.

Teacher Appreciation Week

As a reminder, next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Take a moment to send your child's teacher a note of thanks or small token of gratitude. Our teachers make an amazing difference in the lives of our students each and every day!

Fifth Grade Service Project

Our Fifth Grade students are collecting items for those that have served our country. There is a box in the office available for collection. They are collecting t-shirts, socks, deodorant, soap, and books (all new please) to be donated to the Veteran's Hospital. We will be collecting through Friday, May 11th.
