Welcome Back!

We hope everyone enjoyed their 2 week winter break! Hopefully, you were able to make memories as a family and your child(ren) read plenty of books. As we kick off the 2nd half of the school year, we want to remind you that students should be at school by 7:40, arriving later than that will result in being marked tardy. As we enter the colder months, please remember to dress your children appropriately for the weather. Students are allowed to have outside recess as long as the temperature is not and does not feel less than thirty-two degrees. That type of weather definitely requires a coat/jacket of some type! In the case of sick children, just a reminder that students must be fever free (without medication) for at least 24 hours before they are allowed to attend school. In addition, if your child is vomiting please do not bring he/she to school. Thank you for helping us keep our students and staff healthy. We will see you bright and early tomorrow morning and we look forward to a wonderful second half of the school year!

It's time to get Girl Powered!!!

Registration for the spring Girl Powered workshop is now open. We're excited to host author, illustrator, and robot-enthusiast Shanda McCloskey! Girls will learn from the Doll-E 1.0 author and illustrator as she shares about robots, writing, art, and more! Girls will then have the opportunity to create and hack their own dolls with circuits and coding. Shanda McCloskey will also sign copies of her book during the workshop.
