Regular Registration Fees are now in effect.

Parents have asked if they can still enroll now that early registration is over. Yes, of course but unfortunately the registration fee is higher. And, please be aware that there is limited space in every class.

Here is the link to Re-Enrollment information.


You can also pick up a printed copy of the registration information in the school office.

You must register through your renweb account.

Don't forget about our Finder's Fee Program.

Faculty and Staff Appreciation Week May 6-10


Please take a look at the suggestions provided by the PTL or find some other way to thank your child's teacher for all that they do.

We are 1/3 of the way to having our 30 volunteers for Friday, May 10th from 11:30 to 1:30. We still need more volunteers.


Last Youth Night of the Year

Middle school students are invited to our last youth night of the year.

Friday, May 10th 6:00-7:30PM

On the blacktop. Food will be provided

There will be events involved water balloons and other games so wear APPROPRIATE swimwear or other clothing that you do not mind getting wet.


All Star Dad's Breakfast

Saturday, May 18th 9AM

A time for Dad's and their kids to come for a breakfast together.

You'll take away some great tips and resources to help you be the best dad you can be and strengthen your relationship with your kids at the same time.

Dad's, Uncles, Grandpa's and Friends are all invited to bring their children to this event. It is FREE!

Here is the catch... you MUST SIGN UP so that we can plan for the right number of guests. It would be terrible to not have enough breakfast food to go around!

Please click on the link below to sign up. Put in the name of the male adult and put the number of children that will be attending with you in the comments area.

Summer Camp and Summer School

Summer Camp for all ages will begin on Monday, June 17th. Registration information will be available next week. We have programs for PK age students and also Elementary and middle school grades. Both summer camp programs are 6 weeks long.

Summer Academic program will begin on Monday, June 24th. This program is four weeks, four days per week.

Raffle for a LAPTOP!!

Once again, our youth grade will be raffling off a brand new laptop.

This is to raise money for their youth trip this summer to Minnesota and for our new bus fund (50-50 split).

Tickets will be sold in the business office and in the afternoon in the front office. The laptop is an HP 15.16 HD.LED display with Windows 10 with an AMD processor.

Background check authorization

Below is the link. You cannot chaperone or otherwise interact with our students unless you complete the background check. Recently we had a parent insist that they had filled out the form and turned it in to the school office and could not understand why it had not gone through. There is no form to complete in the school office. This is a very simple form that parents complete from the privacy of your home or office.

We have actually heard this question...

Interesting article below

Disclaimer: I am not describing any parent here but this is worth the read because it discusses how we need to encourage our kids to develop resilience.
