Time for Kids Money-less Fundraiser

The Time for Kids booklet is going to be sent home this coming Wednesday. We ask that each student complete the booklet by providing the names and addresses of 7 or more family members who read magazines in order to win a prize! Just fill out the cards in the booklet and send it back to school no later than the following Wednesday (1/20/16) in order to participate. This money-less fundraiser provides our classrooms with the Time for Kids magazine! Thank you for your participation!


Cold Weather

We will have many cold days ahead of us this month. We wil have outdoor recess everyday unless the wind chill/temperature reaches an unsafe level. It is very important that every child comes to school wearing winter coats, hats, gloves, and appropriate clothing. If you need assistance with any of this clothing, please let us know.


Progress Reports

As the second marking period comes to an end on January 29th, please remember that the district will not be sending home a hard copy of your child's progress report. Progress reports can be accessed through the Home Access System. You can also check your child's attendance as well as make changes to your contacts. If you are not aware of your user name and password, please send a note to the school and we will send that information home with your child. Thank you!!
