What is going on?

We have scheduled a real cartographer to come and talk to the kids. He is requesting all students have a cutie or a clementine orange. Would anyone be willing to donate 21?

Thank you! (Thank you Mrs Gold!) Saved the day again!

We are still running low on glue sticks. If you can send some in, we would appreciate it.

Second Annual Aspiring Authors Writing Competition

The deadline is less than 8 weeks away. The theme for this year is “The Kid Who Stood Out". Who is this kid? Boy or girl? Why did he/she stand out? Let your students’ words fill their paper with a whole new world, new characters and a new special story to share with us. We cannot wait to see what they are going to come up with! To know more about the rules and how to participate, head to our website:
