Changing Plans for Dismissal?

Please call the office prior to 2:45 if you want to communicate a change in transportation for the end of the day. We're seeing an increase in parents calling after kids are already on their way to the bus or Car Rider Line, which leads to a lot of confusion. Please call ahead! Thank you.

Q&A Livestream Event with Mark VandeHei

Mark VandeHei, cousin to fourth grade teacher Jodi VanVooren, engaged our students in a live interview from the international space station. This is Mark’s second trip to the space station. When he finishes this trip he will hold the record for the longest visit for an American astronaut. On December 1 Mark answered questions from our students. It was quite an exciting event!

What's New in the Art Room?

Starting after Thanksgiving break, we are all about WINTER! Kinders are designing mittens, 1st graders are putting sweaters on bears, 2nd grade is starting a gorgeous cardinal project, third graders are designing gnomes, fourth grade is starting calm and peaceful forests, fifth is finishing up printmaking, and sixth graders are using oil pastel to create a sky of their choice (pine trees to be made later). Should be a fun and creative December!

Face Coverings

Face coverings continue to be optional for students and staff at this time. Understandably, families of young children may have concerns about whether or not their child is wearing the mask that is sent to school each day, if they choose to do so.

Please note that teachers will provide feedback on the mask wearing practices of your child upon request, but will not be enforcing mask wearing while it remains optional. This decision is a family based one; as is the enforcement.
