Valentines Day

On Friday, February 14th students will have an opportunity to share Valentines with their classmates. We designate this day as one of our "free food days" so it is acceptable to have the Valentines with treats attached if you choose. Any treats should be a part of the Valentine. Trays of cupcakes, cookies, etc. will not be delivered to classes or distributed to students.


We are not able to accept deliveries of balloons, flowers, cookies, etc. for students. Please do not send your child to school with balloons as they are not permitted on our school buses for safety reasons.

Congratulations

Congratulations to our two students that won the perfect attendance drawing! They each received a bike from the Rotary Club for perfect attendance first semester.
