in the office or stop by to make necessary arrangements.

This rule was created with your child’s safety in mind.

Birthday Celebrations

If a student brings birthday invitations to school, there must be one for each student in the class, or girls can bring one for all the girls and boys can bring one for all the boys. Let me know if you need a class list.

Volunteers

•We love having volunteers at Audubon Elementary!

•In order to keep students safe all volunteers are expected to complete a criminal background check each year before being allowed to volunteer. This requirement is also for any parent who will be attending field trips. I have these available if you would like to take one or you can get one from the front office anytime.
