Make-up Picture Day

If you order pictures they will be in before retake on Tuesday, November 7th to know if you want retakes. Retakes will take place in the morning, so please don't be late to school as we will start photos right away.

Families who did not order before the deadline will receive a proof from the picture from October 2nd and then you can go online and purchase photos from that proof. If you don't like the photo from the proof, you can have your child participate in retake day and order photos from that photo.

Please send a water bottle and backpack with your student everyday

We have water bottle filling stations so please send your child with a water bottle everyday so they have water in the classroom. Please make sure to label the water bottle with their name.
