Recycled items needed for Night of Inquiry, Innovation and Inquiry
We have an exciting project planned for our kiddos at our Night of Innovation on April 19. For this project, we are collecting recycled soup cans, Jell-O cups, yogurt cups, easy mac-n-cheese cups, etc. during the week of April 9-13. Please send in these clean, recycled items to your child’s classroom teacher and our STES diplomats will collect them daily. Please do not send in glass containers.
Parent survey available!
We would love to have all surveys filled out by April 30th. If you are unable to access the link below, please feel free to send your teacher an email and they can send the link directly to you.

VERY IMPORTANT FOR CHAPERONES!!
If you have paid to be a chaperone for the trip, you will need to be fingerprinted very soon as it takes a few weeks to process. The list of dates is available in the front office. The sheet that needs to be turned in at the County Office is also available in the front office (it requires Mrs. Bracy's signature so please make sure you have it prior to going to the County Office.)
