Celebrating Our Outstanding Teachers

Please take moment to thank our incredible PTO for their support during Teacher Appreciation Week. Lunch from Subway, iTunes gift cards, the potato bar and duty free lunch and recess were all courtesy of PTO.


* Webb’s DOK PD (on Edivate) must be completed by Monday, May 9th. Certificates of completion should be placed in the folder outside of my office.

* End-of-Year Faculty Meeting is Tuesday, May 10th for all certified staff. Mrs. Davis will meet with non-certified staff during planning periods between now and Friday, May 13th.

June 1st - Make-Up Hours

We have 7 hours left to make up from our days missed due to weather.

Last day for staff is Wednesday, June 1st

You will have the option of working late on the following days in May to trade-off the June 1st hours.

  • Tuesday, May 17th ... 3pm-5pm
  • Thursday, May 19th ... 3pm-5pm
  • Tuesday, May 24th ... 3pm-5pm
  • Thursday, May 26th ... 3pm-5pm

Additional information will be forthcoming ...

Playground Safety

Please be sure that all students are being carefully supervised when outside. Students find creative uses for playground equipment and often their choices are unwise. Continue to remind all students of appropriate play and usage of equipment.

We will conduct regular sweeps of the playground areas - looking for fire ants and wasp nests - now that spring has arrived. Please let the office know if you see anything of concern.

Weather Make-Up Days

Please continue to include the following statement on your newsletters and webpages. We need to give our parents and students plenty of notice.

“The school day missed due to inclement weather on January 25th will be made up on May 31st, the last designated inclement weather make-up day on our calendar. May 26th will be a full day; the last two days, May 27th and 31st, will be half days.”
