One Book, One School

One Book, One School!

Immunization and physicals are mandatory for new students, PreK, Kindergarten, and incoming fourth grade students.

Please make sure your child has the most up to date records into our school nurse. Immunization records, physicals exam reports, and prescriptions must be up to date and submitted to Nurse Taverna before the first day of school. New students will not be allowed to attend school without the proper documentation in place.

Classroom Supplies and Class Placement

Classroom supply lists- click the red link above.


We always welcome donations of tissues, paper towels, and disposable cleaning wipes to help keep our classrooms clean, but they are not necessary!


Classroom Assignments

A typical summer involves both new enrollments as well as some withdrawals. These transitions can impact classroom rosters slightly. However, class placement letters were sent out at the end of the year. Your child should have received a letter from their homeroom teacher naming their teacher and room number. If your child was absent or you did not attend the Welcome to Kindergarten event, one should have been sent home via mail. If you did not receive this information, please call the school during office hours 8:00 am-2: 00 pm and someone will help you.


If you were granted a transfer to Lowell by Superintendent Galdston or recently enrolled in WPS, you would not receive your child's placement until August 28th. Our guidance counselor will notify you by email or phone. We appreciate your patience!
