Power School Online Access

Did you know there is a Power School App for your phone? Did you know you can get a daily, weekly or monthly email with your child's grades? Did you know your child has the Power School App on their device? Here are three easy ways to keep up with your child's grades at a moment's notice. Your child's grades should never be a surprise. You use the same login and password you used when you registered your child. If you need help with the login and password, please call the school office or ask your child's teacher.

Kindergarten for 2023-2024

Big picture

Do you have a child who will be five by August 1, 2023?

If you have a child who will be five by August 1, 2023, please call the school office. If you have a friend or neighbor who has a child who will be attending kindergarten, please have them call the school office. It is very helpful to have an accurate count as we begin to plan for next year.

Once we have your information, we will call and schedule a time for you to bring your child in to do some preliminary testing. This helps us know where to start in helping your child learn the kindergarten skills. Please know there is no "passing" score and this screening will not ever prevent your child from coming to kindergarten. It is just a way for us to gather information about your little one and to meet them.

Kindergarten Orientation will be held on Tuesday, April 18th at 6:00 PM. We will send your child an invitation to Kindergarten Orientation. On that night, your child will get to see and play in the kindergarten rooms and ride the big yellow school bus. The bus is usually a highlight for the kids. They will get a small gift too. I can't wait to meet our new future kindergarten students!
