Highlight of the Week

The amazing first graders' performance is our highlight of the week! Your students did so well singing in front of the school and again in front of all of their families! We are all so proud of them!


Thank you to everyone who came to our class parties or helped out in any way! YOU made it a success and the kids had so much fun decorating cookies, opening presents, and reading their Santa letters!

Thank you for your sweet notes, cards, hugs, and gifts! They were unexpected and completely welcomed! Thank you all!

Ipads at Home

Families, as a reminder, please make sure your student is bringing their ipad to school every day and that it is fully charged. The students miss out on too much work when they are left at home. Also, their Google Drive folders are for their school projects. Please do not remove anything or add anything unless asked by a teacher. As a reminder, school ipads are for educational use only. Please be aware of pictures being taken at home and continue to monitor them on a daily basis.

Thank you!
