Important Upcoming Dates

May 20th - Spring Carnival
May 30th - No School, Memorial Day


As Penny Road begins opening for parents and school events are on the horizon, we are in need of registered volunteers. There are events happening in the coming weeks and months that will provide the opportunity to volunteer at the school. Please come to the front office as soon as possible during school hours to register, or contact Sarah Hicks at to verify your volunteer status. Thank you for your support!

From Mrs. Roll, 4th Grade Teacher

Hello Pandas, 4th grade is collecting aluminum tabs that are found on the top of soup, soda, and many other types of cans. These tabs will be donated at the end of the school year to the Ronald McDonald House in Durham. They recycle the tabs for money. They use the money to help cover the cost for families to stay at the house. We appreciate your consideration and support in helping us make our community a better place. You can drop off tabs to room 306, thank you.

Art Room Supplies

Mrs. Binnick, our art teacher, is in need of baby wipes for the art room! If anyone could send some to school she would greatly appreciate it. Any brand, any size pack. Our kids go through a load of these during art time.

Thank you
