No School - Monday

Don't forget there is no school on Monday, January 19, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Enjoy the long weekend!


Our students are making great progress in their reading! They have some lofty goals and need your help to reach them.

Primary - 10,000/class

Lower Elementary (Fancher) - 13,000 pages

Lower Elementary (Hines) - 6,000 pages

Upper Elementary - 14,500 pages

Please remind your children to turn in their reading logs each week so they can chart their progress. The Read-a-Thon ends on Friday, February 6. All monies raised should be turned in Friday, February 20.

Each week we have guest readers coming to visit with Primary and Elementary students. This week, Primary met Firemen Brian, Jimmy, and John. It was a great treat!

Contracts | 2015-16 School Year

Don't forget that contracts should be returned by February 15 to secure your child's spot for the next school year. After that, all spaces will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are enrolling a second child, you'll need to complete an application for them, but do not need to pay an application fee. Please contact the school office if you have any questions.
