Scouts' coat drive

Please bring in your slightly used coats and place them in the containers we have in school. Your cooperation is so appreciated and this is a terrific gesture as the weather turns so cold.

The Parent-Teacher Conferences are coming

Be sure you take the time to reserve a spot for the upcoming parent-teacher conferences. Check out Skyward for either Nov. 9th or the 16th to learn more about the progress of your child(ren). Thanks so much! Can't do this one without you.

Remember those box tops in the drawer?

These little pieces of cardboard can really add up to some important cash for our PTO. Place them in plastic bags and trimmed as best you can-that really helps our volunteers. The children and classes who bring in the most are recognized during our assemblies. Thank you!

Halloween in the Primary School

Our staff has done a terrific job, along with our volunteers, to make this special day fun and filled with learning too. I hope you enjoy these photos of what was happening around the school on Tuesday.

Here's a piece of writing, one of many, that are displayed around our school. I encourage you to take a look when you are at school about how the writing skills of our students continue to grow.
