We are almost finished with our ILEARN testing in grades 3, 4 and 5. Thank you for your support in making sure your students are present at school, well-rested, and well-nourished for these important tests!

I want to share some thoughts with you about reading at home. Reading is one of the most fundamental skills that a child can learn, and it plays a crucial role in their development. Not only does reading improve language and vocabulary skills, but it also helps children develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Furthermore, reading can foster creativity, imagination, and empathy in children, which are all essential traits for success in life.

I am passionate about promoting a love of reading among our students. I believe that reading should be an enjoyable and engaging experience for children, and it should be a part of their daily routine both at school and at home.

Here are some ways that you can encourage your child to read:

Set aside time each day for reading: Encourage your child to read for at least 20-30 minutes every day. This can be done before bedtime or during quiet time.

Read with your child: Reading together can be a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your child. Take turns reading aloud or discuss the story together.

Create a reading-friendly environment: Make sure your child has access to a variety of books at home. Consider creating a cozy reading nook or a bookshelf in their room.

Visit the library: Take your child to the local library and let them pick out books that interest them. Encourage them to try different genres and authors.

By promoting a love of reading in your child, you are setting them up for success in all areas of their life. I encourage you to make reading a priority in your child's daily routine and to continue to support their reading journey throughout their academic career.

With Many Thanks

On behalf of the entire school community, I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for the amazing job the PTO has done with fundraising efforts this year. Their dedication and hard work have made a significant impact on the education and well-being of our students.

Thanks to our parent’s efforts, we have been able to provide essential resources that would have been otherwise out of reach. From playground upgrades and classroom supplies to extracurricular activities and field trips, your contributions have made a real difference in the lives of our students.

We are truly grateful for your commitment to our school and your passion for education.

Once again, thank you for all that you do. Your efforts have not only helped us reach our fundraising goals but have also enriched the educational experience of our students.


Congratulations to Mrs. McCarthy's homeroom for collecting the most donations for the KKids Swing Into Spring inclusive playground fundraiser.

Our school raised over our $2,000.00 goal to purchase a swing for the students in our Aspire classroom.

Through a grant written by our Director of Special Education, Jo Cvitkovich, we are also getting a special piece of playground equipment that has wheel chair accees.

Our PTO is also pitching in with money earned this year to purchase a special sun shade that will provide some relief on those hot days in the fall.

We look forward to having everything installed and ready for the new school year.
