Chilly weather is here!

Don't end up like Mr. Cox pictured above!

Please remember to send your children with jackets, hats, gloves, snow pants and snow boots.


Students are outside before school, during lunch recess, and some for afternoon recess. Outside recess will occur at 20 degrees or above.


See the below image of Mr. Cox for reference on how to be prepared for playing in the snow!

4th graders are participating in a research project with the University of Wisconsin.

In the spring, the class will record when the tulip pops up and the height when it is fully grown. They will report this data to the college for their study!

6th Grade Trip Butterbraid Fundraiser!

This year we are teaming up with Integrity Fundraising to sell butter braids to raise money for the 6th grade overnight Denver Museum of Nature and Science Camp-In (which includes class t-shirts). Our goal is to have every student sell 10 butter braids. Additionally, the top seller will receive a $50 gift card to amazon, so encourage your child to sell...sell....sell!


Who are 6th graders selling to? We asked that they sell to family, friends, and close neighbors. Please do not go door to door.


Important things to remember:

- Online ordering is the easiest and most convenient for everyone

- If paying by check, please make checks payable to PK8

- All money needs to be collected when the order is placed (unless they order online and pay via credit card)

- All order forms must be turned in by Thursday, November 17th!

- The ButterBraids will be in on December 1st
