Mrs. Nordby, our school library technician, shared great news with me. In the two years she has been here, we have been able to increase our library circulation by 53%. She has been able to purchase additional books due to donations from PTO, the Kiwanis Club and proceeds from our book fairs. She recently completed a big order for additional books to add to our current collection of 10,604.

I spent this morning at the drop off lane in the north parking lot instead of the center of campus. I want to recognize parents for their patience and commitment to dropping students off and driving away when students exit from their vehicles. It really makes a difference and ensures a smooth process. If you do need to wait, please use the area beyond the second crosswalk (beyond our drop off lane). Thank you for your continued support during morning drop off.

Kindergarten teachers and I are excited to announce that we get to pilot an extended day kindergarten schedule for the 2019 - 2020 school year. The kindergarten day will begin at 8:05 AM and end at 1:30 PM on regular days. On early release days kindergarten students will dismiss at 12:30 PM.

Enjoy the long weekend with your children.
