Message from Administration

Parents,


Wow, what a week! We sure hope your child (ren) came home excited about school! We are so happy to have them here with us. We saw some incredible things happening in the first week. From All About Me Robots to chemical reactions in the 4th grade Steam Lab, it was a fantastic week. We are definitely gearing up for a great year! Thank you for sharing your children with us.


Oh my goodness, the car rider line was forever long on the first day! Please know, if you didn't see us, we were doing our best to find the rhythm. The routine is new for many and we are not giving up until we have efficiency. We ended the week with all students loaded by 3:20pm. It was an exciting Friday!


We hope that you enjoy your three day weekend! Please see the upcoming events this week. We look forward to kicking off our year Tuesday night and celebrating our grandparents Thursday and Friday. Don't forget Wednesday is Picture Day!


Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey



REMINDER: The front office will be closed between 2:30-3:15pm to complete dismissal duties and responsibilities.
