Attendance UPDATE

The realistic goal is to have less than 5% chronically absent, but ultimately 0%. Chronically absent is defined as being out 10% of the days in school. This data impacts our STAR rating. Currently, we are at 12% chronically absent.


For those who are chronically absent, Attendance Officer John Riley may visit your home to inquire about attendance.

Come on down & Grab what you need

Mrs. Tabitha was able to get items donated that the students might need. We have tooth brushes, tooth paste, floss, deodorant, hand sanitizer, and soap.

Ready to Learn

Second Grade: There are some new additions to the classrooms. Grade 2 is learning about pollination and how pollinators provide the fruits and vegetables we enjoy. Students are also learning about the life cycles of various insects. We are very excited about the arrival of our newest insect. Second grade has had chrysalis change into butterflies!! The Painted Lady butterflies have recently emerged from their cocoons. Check them out below.
