News for you!
School Store: School Store will be OPEN one more Tuesdays for the end of year sale.
Wax Museum: The student’s should assemble an outfit to resemble their famous person at home and bring it in on the day of the event. Feel free to be creative & use items in your own house. The students MUST bring in three exhibit items for the Wax Museum, which MUST be appropriate for school and represent their person. Please have your child hold onto his/her costume & exhibit items until the day of the event. They will need to bring the costume and items in on May 27th. Again, please try to find items around the house to wear. We recommend using items at home to save money! Be creative!
