Thank you from Mrs. McGregor

Thank you to every family who donated to the canned food drive, organized by Mrs. McGregor. Anderson Interfaith Ministries picked up 350 cans brought in by our students! Wow!


You are such a giving community!

WINTER BREAK ----- DECEMBER 23 through JANUARY 3

Morning Car Riders

We are closely monitoring our morning drop off and number of tardies.


There are a few things that you can do to help us with the congested traffic between 7:45-7:55 daily.


  • Arrive between 7:15 and 7:45! Traffic moves very smoothly between this time each morning. At 7:45, our 4K program drop off begins and parents crossing the driveway causes backup at times.


  • Ride the Bus! We have a very low percentage of students who ride the bus to school in the mornings.


  • Carpool! Many of our families live in the same neighborhoods. Carpooling is helpful to everyone!


  • Do not walk your child in to school unless you are late. Those who park in the front and walk in cause traffic backup in the car line. This can be prevented if you will drop off in the right lane.


I sincerely appreciate your help with our growing pains!

Tuesday, June 2: Full Day of School

Wednesday, June 3: 11:00 Dismissal
