Grades Due

We will print report cards Monday Morning and grade verification will be due on Wednesday, January 13th.

Donut Days

We have two Doughnut days coming up in the next week. Please take a moment to stop by the cafeteria to greet with parents on your grade level days, even just for a quick smile and a wave. This goes a long way with our parents.

Club Day

We are having another club day on January 15th. This is a quick turn around from the last one....or though it seems. Due to awards days, we had to move this one up a bit. Please note that each of you will need to snap a pic of the activity for the yearbook during this meeting. You will email it to Laura Galloway with the title of the club in the subject line. WE certainly appreciate your help with this!

Science Fair Family Night

Due to some scheduling conflicts, we have went virtual with our Science Fair Family Night scheduled for Monday, January 11th. Instead of having a face to face meeting, we have posted the video on our school Facebook page to assist with preparation for our upcoming science fair. All 3rd students are required to complete and project while 1st and 2nd graders have the option to do a project. You can also watch the video by clicking on the link below. The first 50 people to watch and complete the survey will receive a free Science Fair Board. We hope you find this beneficial.
