How do we get our kids reading?


Make it a routine - whether it's right before the breakfast, or right before bed, set aside a special time every day.



What’s “Just Right”? Children feel confident and competent when they read books that are “just right.” But how do you find a “just right” book? Have your child read the back and front cover, and the first page of the book. If there are more than five words that he cannot pronounce or understand in context, the book may be too challenging. Be supportive about finding a more perfect fit. Choosing the right book will help your little reader feel successful.

Weekly activities:

  • Kona Ice is $2 and will be available on the last Wednesday of each month during recess.
  • PTSO snacks are $1 each are available EVERY Friday during recess.
  • Orange Leaf is $4 and is available on the first and the third Thursday during recess.

Important Reminders

  • If you are dropping off your student AFTER 8:00 please use the front entrance. At 8:00 our teachers are getting their homeroom class and starting the day.
  • If you know your student will be absent please call the front office at 405-256-5250.

We have a growing collection of lost items on the stage in the cafeteria. Please encourage your student to check the cafeteria if he or she is missing something. With coat season approaching, we will see more jackets and coats left around. Please write your student's name in his or her coat so if it is left around we can get it back to them promptly.
