This school year, our School Librarian position was changed from a full-time position to a .7 position (3 1/2 days). Therefore, Mrs. Towns has very limited time to shelve books. She would love it if some people could volunteer to help her shelve them. Whether it be a one time volunteer, a weekly, or daily, we need your help. Can you give 30 minutes? one hour? a full day?

Please contact Mrs. Towns at or, just call the office and leave your name and number.

Each week a student in Mrs. Regh's class chooses an experiment. The student follows a format for a lab report and review it with the class. The student then performs the experiment, reviews the outcome with the class, and then answers questions.

This week, a student dropped a roll of Mentos into Diet Coke and a "volcano" erupted. The carbon dioxide molecules in the soda attach to the rough surfaces of the Mentos. This causes a physical reaction. The Mentos in a lot of soda make a lot of bubbles that rise to the surface and push the soda out in a big woosh!

When you are dropping off or picking up your child, please pull up as far as you can and as close to each other as you safely can. We want to alleviate any traffic on Cox Street. Please do not block the entrance/exit on Cox Street and the bus entrance/exit. Children should exit and enter cars on the right side of your vehicle. Do not exit your car to help your child. Staff will assist them.


We have three tables of sweatshirts, jackets, lunchboxes and backpacks. Please label your child's belongings. That way we can be sure that the items get back to their owners.

Also, if your child is missing clothing or a backpack or lunchbox, feel free to stop by and check out our tables.


Hats and hoodies are not allowed to be worn during the school day. The exception is that hats can be worn on some spirit days. There are children who are hiding inside of their hoodies in the classrooms.

Cell phones are not allowed to be seen or heard in school. If a child has one, it must be turned off and not seen or heard (kept in backpack). If it is seen or heard, it will be sent to the office and have to be picked-up by a parent. All phone calls from students will go through the office. Cell phones can only be used at CHAPS and the Boys and Girls Club.

No electronics are allowed to be used on the bus.
