We need you to help make our Field Day the Best Day EVER!! Please sign up to work a station for May 31st. The goal is to have at least 120 volunteers so you will have 2-4 parents at each station. Your child will rotate through your station and you may have a chance to take a break and go see them in other activities. We will begin at 8:00 and complete Field Day by 12:00. You can sign up for the game and age group you are interested in working. Thanks again for your support, these kids have worked hard all year and deserve a Fun Day of games!

The kids are always so proud to have you there helping make our Field Day a success!!

Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

We will be participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge again this summer. Information and reading logs started going home this week. Every student in K-5th grade is welcome to participate. Every student in K-4th grade has a goal written on his/her reading log. If the student meets the goal (and returns the sheet), he/she will be eligible to check-out an extra book during check-out next year. Minutes can be logged online to count toward the world record, but to count toward the check-out incentive I must receive the written log.

Remember to log those minutes all summer long!
