Kids Heart Challenge is Here!

We have officially kicked off Kids Heart Challenge with the American Heart Association! Our students will be helping others while actively learning about ways to keep their own hearts healthy by moving more, coloring their plate, and by practicing acts of kindness! It’s free to sign up your student, and donations raised during this event help benefit our PE program by providing health & wellness resources for our community and classrooms, as well as PE equipment for our school. Please support the AHA’s mission of building longer, healthier lives and also supporting our school and students!

To sign up, download the free Kids Heart Challenge App

Every student who raises $200 get a cup of slime to pour on Coaches at an assembly!

Do you want to volunteer this year?

If so, you must complete a yearly volunteer background check! We love to have helpers at school for the following things: lunch helper, copy mom, field trip chaperone, and classroom helper. We recommend you do it now, even if you don't plan to volunteer until later in the year. Then it's done!

First Grade Lunch Helpers Needed

First Grade would like one parent helper to volunteer during our lunch time. Your job would be to stand in the lunch line and help students make their food choices in a timely manner, then help supervise the students at their tables during lunch time. Please click on the link below to sign up!

Copy Moms Needed

If you are interested in helping teachers out with their copies every Thursday, please use the link below to sign-up.

Copy Mom Sign Up

Transportation Changes

ALL transportation changes need to be made through Polly in the front office. If there is a change please notify the front office by no later than 2:15. Please do not email your child's teacher! We are no longer able to accept transportation changes by email, and we don't usually have time to check our email during the school day. Notifying the front office will ensure that your child goes home the correct way!
