Morning Reminders: Students can enter the building on the front or side in the morning. If you plan to drop off in the front of the school, please come from the East side and turn right into the parking lot. If you plan to drop off on the side of the school, please enter the parking lot from the West side into the left lane. It is a challenge when parents are changing lanes once they have entered the parking lot.


Student-Led Conferences will be March 7th-8th. These will be in-person unless you prefer a Zoom conference. Sign-ups will be coming soon from the classroom teacher on 2/28/22.


Too Cool Twosday, a special day for 1st grade, and Read Across America will be here soon! Check out the graphics below.

Time to Enroll

We are in the process of registering students for the 2022-2023 school year. Your child brought home an information sheet. Please review the phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses to make sure they are correct. List current medical diagnosis, conditions, and/or medications. Please attach an updated electric or gas bill showing your current address to this sheet and return no later than Friday, February 25th. This is required for registration for the 2022-2023 school year. If you are on a continuous transfer request, please send a bill with your current address so we can verify we have the correct information. You will not need to complete another request for transfer.


Do you have an up-and-coming Young Yellowjacket at home? Kindergarten registration is coming up soon. More details will be provided as registration time gets closer, but please mark March 7th as Kindergarten Registration Day on your calendar! Also, Pre-K registration is open! See the graphic below for details!
