A Note From Mrs. Looman

  • If you or someone you know has a student that will be attending our preschool next year, please be sure to return the registration paperwork. We need that information in order to create the class schedule. The deadline for the paperwork to be returned is June 1st, but it can be turned in at the front office at anytime.

  • 6th grade families: Please remember to turn your yearbook pages in by Tuesday, May 30th so the yearbooks can be put together.

  • The heat in the building is going to be turned off on Monday. We may still have some cooler mornings, so you may want to send a sweatshirt in for your child to keep in their locker.

  • On Monday, June 5th Detective Tucker Jenkins of the Shelburne Police Department

    will be in to speak with students in 5th & 6th grades about topics related to discrimination, social awareness, bullying, and leadership. In this thirty-minute Detective Jenkins and a few colleagues will highlight important societal issues to increase our communities’ awareness and proactivity in fostering positive development of the youth in the community. Of note, there will be a general focus on the importance of leadership, respect and integrity.
