Quick Overview

Hello Families,

I hope you are enjoying your summer with family and friends! Your child will soon receive a letter in the mail. It will include a note from me and it will also share who their classroom teacher will be for the 2021-2022 school year.

This year, we are working with School Toolbox to offer a way for you to shop for school supplies for your child. If you would like to order them and have them shipped to your home, please follow this link: This is an optional opportunity and they have utilized our teacher-provided lists to supply these options. Here are the supply lists for the 2021-2022 School Year.

Finally, please check out information from our PTO. They are excited to welcome new and returning Givens families and would like some information from you.
