School Closing Information

School Closing - Please read the attached letter. We will be using our SkyAlert System to notify all of our families of any school closings, you should have received a test broadcast earlier this week. You will be receiving this information via text, email, and a phone call based on the information we have for your family in the Skyward.


With the weather getting colder we are seeing students not dressed for the weather. Please note per policy: students are expected to go outside during normal school hours, except in inclement weather, defined as rain, heavy snow, a strong cold wind or a temperature below +5 degrees F, or if the wind chill factor goes below 0 degrees F. Children will remain indoors during lunch and recess periods on such days. If dressed appropriately, a student healthy enough to be in school should be able to go out for fresh air and exercise. After a prolonged illness with a doctor’s request we will excuse a child from recess. Students in 4K-3rd grade must wear snow pants, boots, jacket, mittens, and a hat if they want to play in the snow. Students who do not have the proper clothing will be asked to remain on the blacktop so they do not spend the remainder of their school day in wet clothing. Students in 4th – 8th grade are encouraged to dress for the snow but if they choose not to, and get wet, they may end up wearing damp clothes for the afternoon.

Lost and Found

There are a TON of items in the Lost and Found! Please stop before/after school hours to check or have your child check!

Way to go Robotics!

They finished 17th at the tournament on Saturday. There were 36 teams, so they were right in the middle.

They won the Innovative Solution Award for there Space Multi Tool. This award is given to the team that recognizes a solution that is exceptionally well-considered and creative with good potential to solve the problem researched.

They only give out 10 awards total, so this is quite prestigious. The certificate will be framed for the schools trophy case.

Thank you to all staff for your support this season!

Holiday Craft Day

The Holidays are fast approaching and that means so is our school Holiday Craft Day. The 4K-5th grade students will be making an ornament and Holiday card this year. The ornament will be displayed on the school tree for the Holiday concert and then sent home. The Holiday card will be given to senior citizens in Washington County that receive home delivered meals. Each classroom requires 2-3 volunteers to assist the students in making the ornaments and cards.

Use this link to signup for a classroom to assist. This year the date/time can vary by classroom so pay careful attention to the date/time you signup for.

Raising Caring Kids

Raising Caring Kids: Using Values to Guide Good Decisions

Children learn to tie their shoes, read and write, solve math problems, and remember science facts and events in history. Children can also learn to be good people. You can help children learn to be honest, to care about others, and to make good choices by talking about morals, values, and ethics together. Here’s how to talk about values.
