Grill Out Success!!!

Thank you for helping to make our First 5th Grade Grill out a success!!! The kids had a great time, and we had so much fun both principals and several teachers came to join us!! We really appreciate the families that volunteered to send things in. I'm sorry that everyone didn't get a chance to send items in...the google form was filled within about 1 hour of sending it out!!! We have been so blessed this year to have such supportive and loving families to work with. You make doing the extras possible..we could not do it without you!!!

Middle School Visit

We started our middle school visit with Ms. Herbold (Principal) giving the students a presentation explaining what a typical day for them would look like. After the presentation Student Council Members gave each class a tour of the building focusing on the 6th grade hallway, and areas that they would be for classes, lunch, PE, music, band, etc.

Websites We Like in Class

**These websites would be great to use during the summer months to help keep students sharp and ready for Middle School. They can also use them as resources in 6th grade!!!

End of Year Meal Reminders: Important

  • All meal charges should be paid as soon as possible and enough money sent to prepay current meals.
