If you happen to drop off a jacket, lunch box, etc. during the day, there is a bin with 5th grade’s label on it in the foyer. Please utilize this bin and it will be sent down to the grade level before recess and lunch. We are trying to teach students to check this bin if they forgot something to see if their parents dropped it off.

Special Note-Winter Break
Our December Focus is Growth Mindset
Growth mindset is the belief that you can get smarter and improve. A person with growth mindset takes on new challenges with optimism. You can see why this is an important character skill that we want to encourage for our students. The students will learn more about this topic through guidance lessons and daily class meetings during the month of December. On another topic, thank you for supporting the Angel gift program.
