Standardized Testing

We will be having our annual standardized testing in the elementary grades over the next few weeks. As you know, we simply use this as an additional assessment tool to measure our curriculum. We encourage our students to get a good night's sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast, be at school on time, and make their best efforts.


We will be conducting testing for 2nd-6th Grades the week of April 17th, 1st Grade the week of April 24th, and Kindergarten the week of May 1st.

Field Day Shirts / Yearbook Orders

Please be reminded that Field Day shirts (Kindergarten through 6th Grade) and Yearbook (Pre-K through 6th Grade) orders must be submitted by Wednesday, April 19th. Do not miss your one opportunity to order these great end of year items!!

Uniform Clearance Sale

We will be sending 2017-2018 uniform order forms home in May, along with pre-packaged school supplies, and planners for the new school year; however, we are currently having a sale on our stock of uniforms for this year. If you are interested in purchasing new uniforms, to either complete this year or get a head start on next year, this is a great opportunity! We will be sending order forms home today for the items that we have available. We will be selling our short sleeve polos at $15/each versus the normal $20.


We also have a few various sizes and colors of long sleeve polos, Peter Pan blouses, jackets, jumpers, and sweaters. These will also be available at a discounted price.

Second Grade Giving Without Walls

Our Second Grade students are working on their Giving Without Walls project and would love to have any donations of old t-shirts or tennis balls. They will be making dog toys that will be donated to the local shelter.
