Yeehaw! Fourth grade celebrates cattle drive learning

Fourth-graders have been studying the cattle drive era of the late 19th century. On Thursday, we dressed in our Western duds to celebrate our hard work and learning. Be sure to ask your child about big swimmin' and brushpoppers and buffalo chips!


Fourth-graders have been challenged this school year to read 40 books from specific genres. Parker Grace Ferguson is the first student this year to complete the challenge. Way to go, Parker Grace! We look forward to celebrating more voracious readers this winter and spring! Forms are available online. Click here.

Morning drop-off reminder

Students do not need to wait for someone to open their door to exit to the curb.

As long as the line of cars is stopped and you are next to the curb, please have your student(s) exit on the curb side and walk along the sidewalk to the Pod 3 doors.

This will greatly improve the wait time and reduce tardies. Thank you!

Spelling tests are available online
