Wednesday Flag Salute-Wear Red, White & Blue for Patriot Day

This Wednesday is a special spirit day in honor of Patriot Day. Parents are welcome to join us as we honor one student from each class with the Pride of the Lions. We also recognize students for great behavior with our "Lions' Mane" award. Teachers will let you know in advance if your student is being spotlighted this week so that you can arrange to attend. We hope you will join us this Wednesday to celebrate our Lions and showcase our school spirit.

Please be mindful of the school parking lot procedures. The line closest to the curb is a moving lane for student drop off and pick up only. Please pull as far forward as possible. If you need to park, please do so in the parking lot. When parking in the neighborhood for pickup/dropoff and school-wide events, we kindly ask that cars are parked so as not to obstruct the private driveways of the homes surrounding our school, our neighbors would greatly appreciate it.

Please remember to use the cross walk when crossing through the lanes, parking lot, and the street. Remember, we want to model safe practices for our students. Common courtesy and patience is always appreciated as we move 900 students in and out within 15 minutes.

Kinder Parents- Wednesday pick up is extremely busy due to modified day dismissal. Please make sure you are using the crosswalks to cross into the parking lot. Thank you!
