Grit, Purpose, and Hope is the Capturing Kids' Heart theme for April

We are encouraging our Explorers to continue the passion and perseverance to do their best in school with the hope for a better future of tomorrow! This Wednesday students have the opportunity to dress Hawaiian to promote perserverance from the movie Moana!

Safety Reminders

Please make sure to self-screen your family daily to avoid the spread of COVID-19. If your child has any of the Covid Symptoms please contact our school Nurse Ms. Diaz at 361-878-2800 before returning to school each day.
