Measureable Results Assessment (MRA) Survey

The MRA is a whole school survey that gathers teacher, staff, student (in grades 4-5), and students’ family perceptions of the social and emotional development of students, collective efficacy between teachers, trusting relationships, academic mindsets, student empowerment, wellness factors and much more. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey to give us feedback.

Happy Feet Club

*UPDATE: Please do not arrive/drop off students prior to 7:15. The front doors do not open until 7:15.

Now that the weather is good, we would like to host a modified version of "Running Club." It is going to be 1-2 grade levels a day to keep low numbers. This is simply for exercise and won't be run like Running Club in the past. We won't be keeping track of laps and parents do not need to sign up their students.

  • Starts on April 12th
  • Monday-K/1, Tuesday-2nd, Wednesday-3rd, Thursday-4th, Friday-5th
  • Time: 7:15-7:35
  • Students will drop bookbags in the cafe and go straight out to track.
  • Students WILL need to wear their mask when "walking/talking" to peers. If they choose to run on their own, they may drop their mask.

May Menus

Grab and Go Breakfast

Lunch Menu

Lunch Buddy Menu

Lunch Buddy Program -- Students who bring their lunch from home can add a fruit, vegetable, grain (chips/cookies) or milk for free by going through the cafeteria serving line.

The county will continue to offer FREE breakfast/lunch through the remainder of this school year!

Cafe and Ice Cream are BACK!

In an effort to safely allow classes to get to eat in the cafe, we have created a schedule for two grade levels a week to eat in the cafe. For our larger grade levels/classes, we have split them into two weeks. Next week, it will be kinder and 5th (Bohdan/Fitzsimmons) grade in the Cafe.

We will sell ice cream to the assigned grade levels in the cafe ONLY. The homeroom teachers will let you know if they have set certain days of the week for ice cream. Ice cream is $1 and we ask that you please send in small bills.

BIRTHDAY ICE CREAM PASSES--If your child has a birthday and you would like to purchase ice cream for the class to celebrate, please send in $1 per student in the class and email the homeroom teacher to coordinate.
