A Note from Mrs. Mathe

Today, we had another great PAWS-itive awards ceremony during lunches. The students are so sweet, cheering on and celebrating their friends! We love celebrating the successes of our students.

Please note: on Tuesday, March 1st, we will be open as an election site. Voting will take place in the foyer of the building. Due to these added guests, we will not host lunch visitors. We ask that send your child with all their supplies that day in the morning (backpack, lunchbox, glasses, water bottle, etc.) to limit the number of school visitors that need to access the front office. If you do need to visit the school during the election, ring the bell by the front door, and Mrs. Pierson will speak with you through the speaker. If you need to come into the building, the front office staff will let you in through the side doors. Thank you in advance for your help with this matter!

Upcoming Dates

March 1: Voting on campus

March 4: Kindergarten rodeo day

March 4: Crossing Guard Appreciation Day

March 5: Sci-Tech Fair

March 11: No School

March 14-18: Spring Break

Let's show our crossing guards some love on Friday!

Morning Car Line Updates

On Tuesday and Thursday mornings, our 4th grade choir rehearses. Parents are dropping off their 4th graders from 7:15-7:25 am, before our line for all other students opens up. This is causing some extra traffic, and students crossing in front of other cars, which is a cause for concern.

Starting Tuesday, February 22nd, if you arrive early (before 7:30) to wait in line to drop off your child, we will have a sign out to indicate where you should wait (line will start by the rock garden). This will allow our choir parents to safely pull around and drop their 4th grader off under the covered patio. Once the 7:30 bell rings, all other cars may start to pull forward and drop off.

Special note: Choir parents that also drop off other siblings after 7:30, please pull around our parking lot and rejoin the main car line. You may pull into a space until 7:30 in an effort to not block staff from getting into the parking lot.

Again, we ask for car line parents to follow these protocols on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. A sign will be placed in the parking lot to remind you of the system.
