Field Trip/ Volunteer Update
ANY adult who plans on going on a field trip with their child needs to complete the online volunteer application and apply for "Small group tutor/ Level 2", NOT "Field trip/ Level 1". We cannot allow anyone who is Level 1.
If you are coming into the building to visit or volunteer, we will need an ID. The Raptor system does a quick version of a background check when any adults enter the building.
We appreciate your help in keeping all of our children safe!
ERS Thrive Jr. Sign Up
We are excited to announce that we are starting a Thrive Jr. Entrepreneurship Club, powered by VentureLab. Entrepreneurship isn't just about starting a business. It is a skillset and a way of thinking. It involves identifying needs, brainstorming creative solutions, taking calculated risks, learning from failure, and persevering despite setbacks.

Please join us in supporting this year’s Giving Drive between December 5-15! We are collecting food, toiletries, diapers, etc. to support Webster-Rock Hill Ministry. They do a lot of very important work in our direct community and we are excited to help stock their shelves. Items can be dropped off in the foyer at school or brought to your child’s classroom teacher. Or you can order directly from this Amazon list and the items will ship directly to school. Thank you for your generosity!
