Class Placements for Next Year

For the 2021-2022, we will be working as a collective staff to create homerooms for next year based upon many factors. Parents are able to request a Parent Input Form from the child's teacher to share their child's educational needs from their perspective. Teachers will use this information to help decide student placement for next year. We are not taking specific teacher requests this year in order to equitably distribute students into homerooms.

Homeroom placements will not be solidified until later in the summer. Parents will be notified during our Registration event at the end of July/early August.

5th & 6th Grade GLOW Event

Ticket sales for the 5th/6th grade GLOW event has been extended through Wednesday, May 12th. Students must have completed parent permission form and $3 cash. Purchase your ticket in the Commons from 7:30a-8:00a. The event will be after school next Friday, May 21st, from 1:30-3:15p.
