STEM Carnival

Our STEM Carnival last night was a huge success! We had many students and their family members attend the event and participate in exciting, hands-on games reinforcing math, science, engineering and technology skills. Some of the fun activities included Plinko, Marshmallow Mouth, Popping Pigs, Strong Student, Duck Pond and many more!

I would like to give a very big thank you to our carnival organizer, Mrs. Katie Davis, her lead planning committee, Mrs. Alina Burton and Ms. Mary Rositano, along with our many teacher and student volunteers, for making this family night such a success.

Does the winter weather have you stuck inside?

That's the perfect time to have your child practice his/her reading and math skills! Click on the link below to access two programs that we use here at school, Achieve 3000 and Dreambox. Don't forget to have your child read for at least 20 minutes each day too. It can make a huge difference for a child!

Lost And Found

Is your son or daughter missing a jacket, sweatshirt, hoodie or other item of clothing? We have many items still remaining in our Lost and Found! Please remind your student to check the Lost and Found (located outside the art room) to see if any items belong to them. Families may also come by the office to check out the Lost and Found themselves. We will be donating remaining items in our Lost and Found to a local charity during the week of February 11th.
