Dear Parents,

The end of the school year is winding down and I want you each to know how grateful I am for your support of our wonderful school. Without a top notch staff and supportive parents, my job would be extremely difficult. I am blessed to have you!

Have a wonderful summer! I look forward to seeing each of you who are returning in August. I wish those of you moving on to Intermediate School the best of luck in third grade.


Dr. Tyler M. Long

If you would like to help at the Fun Fair or can donate items to our concession stand or bake sale, please send in your form or write us a note. We hope to see you at the fair!!!!


The kindergarten will be presenting "An Animal Safari" on Thursday, May 16th, at 6:30pm. If you have not yet paid for your child's t-shirt and animal mask, please send in $4 as soon as possible.


Help our school earn FREE money by sending in your clipped box tops. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school. We will send in our final batch for reimbursement on May 29th so we ask that you send them in by May 28th!! They can be sent in a sandwich baggie or we have sheets they can be glued onto if you'd prefer that.


We have a large assortment of jackets and sweatshirts in our lost and found from this year. We will have these items out at our fun fair. Feel free to take what is yours. Anything left will be donated. Thank you!
