Orcas Show Kindness!
During Kindness week students had the opportunity to spend one of their recesses making thank you cards for community helpers. Several of them chose to make cards for police officers, which were sent to the Pierce County Sheriff Department. The Sheriff's Department sent back a very sweet "Thank you"!

Kindergarten registration is in full swing, with a variety of activities and resources to help families and incoming kinders prepare for the first day of school. This month our schools are hosting orientations, called Kindergarten Roundup. Prior to kinder screening, Roundup provides students and families an opportunity to physically tour the school, meet staff and receive pertinent information regarding registration.
