Nominating Committee: We are ​still looking for volunteers to share in chairing committees for next year. ​Several committees and events are at risk of being lost due to a lack of volunteers. Please consider stepping up to co-chair and volunteer for a program so that we can continue to offer all of these opportunities to our children. If you have expressed an interest in helping, please send a message to to confirm your commitment to volunteering. ​We are working on putting together a comprehensive list of each committee so that you can find what is the bet fit for you.​

5th Grade Moving Up DVD

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the families who have sent in photos for the 5th grade moving up DVD. Our students in Media Club have been working hard to have the DVD ready for production!
