Awards Day, this Friday, May 28th - Please note.......

Unfortunately parents of K-4 will be unable to attend this year's award ceremony. With that in mind, we have planned a very special ceremony for each grade level that will include a commemorative photo of your student that will be mailed with report cards. We realize that nothing compares to being with us, but we hope this photo will be a keepsake for you and your child for years to come. We invite you to let them dress up if they would like to do so.

We will host Award's Day for all students on Friday, May 28th. Fifth grade students will be allowed to invite 2 guests. The fifth grade program begins at 8:15 a.m. Guests will not be able to attend for grades K - 4. We appreciate your understanding as we maintain our efforts to keep our entire school family safe and well. Pictures will be taken during this event and mailed home with report cards.

Fun Day will be held for all students on Tuesday, June 1st. Fun Day shirts are on sale now. WE ARE SOLD OF ALL YOUTH SIZES. See details that follow this information. (These are white shirts that work great for our Color Run!) Parent volunteer spots have been filled. The only visitors allowed on campus for this event will be our parent volunteers. There were only a few volunteer positions and they were filled the first day. We look forward to the day when all parents will be able to join our end of year activities.

The last day of school for students is Thursday, June 3rd. Students will dismiss at 11:30 a.m.


For your student's safety and for the benefit of our school community please send your student in closed toe shoes and socks and be mindful of shorts and skirt lengths, inappropriate messages and thin straps on shirts.
