Literature Pumpkins

It's that time of year again! The literature pumpkins are taking over the main lobby. Here are just a few of the amazing pumpkins we have so far. Very creative! Keep them coming.

We want to send a shout out to our generous sponsors and partners!

Thank you so much to our community partners for the generous donations along with volunteering at our school. We are so thankful for all you do!

Good Neighbors

Please be mindful of our neighbors and do not throw trash in their yards after school. We've had several complaints from our neighbors about trash in their yards. Let's all be good to our school neighbors.

Menger Homework

Just a friendly reminder that our students have 20 minutes of reading homework and a short math activity each night. Research shows that homework at the elementary level is not effective as an instructional tool, so this year we have significantly decreased the amount of homework our students receive. We would much rather they spend quality time being kids and enjoying their families.
