Fall Fundraiser

Our fundraiser was a big success, and we appreciate all of your support! The orders and prizes will arrive in approximately three weeks. We will let you know when we have a definite delivery date. The Animal Patrol and Money Machine prizes will happen on December 6th.

Congratulations to our big sellers Naomi W. in 3rd Grade and Chayse A. in Kind! They will receive their choice of the three big prizes offered - uniforms, lunch and Parent's Night Out, or two months of afterschool classes!! Thank you girls (and their parents) for a great job selling!!

Our winning classes will receive a pizza and cookie party! Our winning classes are Mrs. Collins and Mrs. Donaldson's Pre-K class and Mrs. Bradley's 3rd Grade!! You will have your party on Monday, November 2nd, so parents do not need to order or bring a lunch that day! Congratulations to those classes!

Original Works

All students will bring home Original Works projects today. Your child's individual artwork will be included in the package, and you are able to order many different types of items with your child's work on it - including mugs, coasters, ornaments, cards, and much more! These make great holiday gifts for friends and family! Orders will be due by Monday, November 5th and will be back in time for the holidays. Please leave your child's artwork in the package when you return it.

Fall Festival - Saturday, October 27th

We are so excited to host our annual Fall Festival on Saturday, October 27th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This is a fantastic family event full of wonderful and safe family fun! Children are welcome to wear costumes to this event if they want.

Enjoy carnival style games, cake walk, visit from the Fire Department, face painting, snacks, and much more! This is a completely free event for all families. We appreciate any donations of candy, small prizes, cakes/baked goods for cake walk, and any donations for our raffle table. Raffle tickets will be sold for $2/ticket. We will also have Kona Ice available for sale. In addition, you can sign up to work a game if you are interested.

We hope that everyone plans to attend this fun day, and we appreciate your support with your donations!

As a reminder, students will not be permitted to wear costumes to school on October 31st.

Valuables in vehicles

Our parking lot remains safe, but we are near busy roads. As the holidays approach, we want to make sure that everyone stays safe. Please lock your cars and do not leave purses, children, or other valuable items in your car when you come inside the school.

Parenting Resources - Internet Safety

Our children have more technology available to them, and we need to help make sure that they understand how to be safe on the internet. Cyberbullying is a topic that we must educate them on. We discuss this often at school and want to help our students always know how to keep themselves safe, as well as treat others respectfully.
