A Note From the Principal...

Hello Students and Parents!

It is hard to believe that Spring is almost here! The students have been working hard this year and we want to make sure they finish strong. We have several upcoming events that will promote student success and provide some fun opportunities for students!

As always, if you have any concerns about your child or their classes, please reach out to the office so that we can be of assistance to you and your child.

Have a great day!


Mrs. Jennifer Klaus

AR Points and Read Along

Mrs. Cooperrider is starting her 4th read along for the year on March 10! Students can join the read along at anytime. Previous books lessons, chapters and read alongs are posted on google classroom. We ask that the student get a copy of the book from the school library and they follow along as Mrs. Cooperrider reads the book. Students may test on the book for AR points regardless of their reading level or grade level. Please see the picture below for more information!
