Student Reminders

Please have students dress in layers and bring a jacket for the unpredictable spring weather.

Students are encouraged to have sunscreen in lockers to apply for outdoor PE and recess. Students should still have at least one emergency lunch item in their locker.

Lost and Found

Parents please check in the lost and found bin for the lost items, it is bursting at the seams!

We are now accepting out of district applications for the 2019-2020 school year. Please contact Ms. Clark if you still need to receive an application.

Thank you.

Box Tops & Labels for Education Program

Welcome back to school! We will be participating in both the Labels for Education and the Box Tops for Education™ programs again this year. Send clipped labels to school with your child as you collect them and I will submit them. Sign up at to get coupons and stay updated on our school’s earnings. Money raised from Box Tops is used by the Parent Group to fund projects at the school and Labels earnings can be used by the teachers to get supplies for the classroom. Thanks for helping!
