3rd Grade Staff Donations Start in January

Third grade families can begin bringing in non perishable snacks and drinks to stock the staff lounge in January. Donations can be sent in with your student or dropped off in the vestibule at the front of the school. The staff has appreciated all the snacks they have received so far and it has been a great pick me up throughout the day!

Did you know?

Did you know that the PTO not only gifts each teacher with a $400 room allocation to buy any supplies they need, but we also fund special grade level grants?! One of the most popular grants we do is the 4th grade chick embryology project. They are still waiting for their eggs from the 4-H Purdue Extension Program, but here are some pictures from last years chicks.

Thank you to all of the teachers, staff, and parents who have worked so hard to make this school year a success so far. As a thank you to our teachers, we surprised them on their last day before winter break with a pizza and cookie dough.
