Winter is Coming...

It’s hard to believe winter is upon us. Students will continue to go outside for recess almost every day, weather permitting. As the weather starts to get colder we remind students to layer before going outside. In order to stay healthy, students will need to be prepared and bring warm clothes to school including: jackets, hats, mittens and boots. Please inform our F.A.N. (Family Access Network) advocate if your child is in need of any of the above clothes items.

Purchase your yearbook!

Click the link below to order your yearbook. We have added a neat feature that allows each student to have a couple of customizable pages where they can add their own photos and memories from the year. This will make your child's book extra special.
