  • It's very important that your child is on time to school each day! In the morning students are placed into groups based on areas for growth or enrichment. This is a valuable 40 minutes of instruction. Instruction begins at 7:40 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.

  • If you have any transportation changes, please make sure that you let Ms. Donna know by 2:40. This helps ensure that she has enough time to alert teachers of the change.

  • Parents will be able to come eat lunch with their child at our outdoor picnic area.

  • Please head over to our website to sign up for E-Notes. This will allow you to receive the weekly parent newsletter by email.

  • Your child may bring a water bottle to school and refill it our touch less water fountains.

Counselor Corner

Our Word of the Month for May is Reflection. This can be a reflection of what this school year has been like and how we have grown from it. It can, also, mean how we reflect on ourselves. The way we see/reflect on ourselves has a lot to do with our self-esteem. It is very important to be your own biggest fan and to believe in yourself. Here are a few ways to work on self-esteem with your child this week.

As always, if you need anything please do not hesitate to reach out!
