Principal's note

February brought some surprising weather. The two snow days were certainly a treat. As hard as it is to believe, Spring is right around the corner. As the weather gets warmer, more students will be walking and riding their bikes to school. Remember to drive slowly in the parking lot and stay vigilant. Only release students from the car next to the curb. This will prevent a student from stepping in front of a car in the passing lane. We have many students arriving by car every day. The four way stop keeps the traffic flow from being efficient. Please be patient and help us keep all students safe.

Health room request

The health room is in need of boys or girls pants sizes 5- 10. Please donate if you can or return any pants your child has borrowed. We greatly appreciated it. Pants are at a premium during the winter and spring months.
