Our 2nd grade field trip to the L & N Train Depot will be on Wednesday, May 18th. Please send in $3 for students and $5 for parents that plan to attend. We will leave at 9:30 and return to school around 1:30. We will have lunch at Preston Miller Park (located at the waterpark). Students need to bring their own lunch with a drink. Students can wear their spirit wear shirts with uniform bottoms.


Allergy season is upon us and we have a lot of sneezing and running noses in the classroom. We would greatly appreciate boxes of tissues for the classroom. Our tissue supply has been depleted. Thanks!!

Ice Cream at Lunch

Ice cream may be purchased on Wednesdays and Fridays for 2nd grade students.

FYI...Change in Snack!!

Please remember to pack a snack for your child. We are always grateful for snacks given to the class for when one doesn't have a snack. If you would like to contribute to the snack supply, please only send in snacks that are individually packed. Thanks! :)
