Holiday Craft Day

Still many volunteer slots available! Please sign-up to help in your child's classroom next week.

The Holidays are fast approaching and that means so is our school Holiday Craft Day. The 4K-5th grade students will be making an ornament and Holiday card this year. The ornament will be displayed on the school tree for the Holiday concert and then sent home. The Holiday card will be given to senior citizens in Washington County that receive home delivered meals. Each classroom requires 2-3 volunteers to assist the students in making the ornaments and cards.

Use this link to signup for a classroom to assist. This year the date/time can vary by classroom so pay careful attention to the date/time you signup for.

School Closing Information

School Closing - Please read the attached letter. We will be using our SkyAlert System to notify all of our families of any school closings, you should have received a test broadcast earlier this week. You will be receiving this information via text, email, and a phone call based on the information we have for your family in the Skyward.


With the weather getting colder we are seeing students not dressed for the weather. Please note per policy: students are expected to go outside during normal school hours, except in inclement weather, defined as rain, heavy snow, a strong cold wind or a temperature below +5 degrees F, or if the wind chill factor goes below 0 degrees F. Children will remain indoors during lunch and recess periods on such days. If dressed appropriately, a student healthy enough to be in school should be able to go out for fresh air and exercise. After a prolonged illness with a doctor’s request we will excuse a child from recess. Students in 4K-3rd grade must wear snow pants, boots, jacket, mittens, and a hat if they want to play in the snow. Students who do not have the proper clothing will be asked to remain on the blacktop so they do not spend the remainder of their school day in wet clothing. Students in 4th – 8th grade are encouraged to dress for the snow but if they choose not to, and get wet, they may end up wearing damp clothes for the afternoon.

Raising Caring Kids

Raising Caring Kids: Changing the Way You Look at the World

Perspective taking requires you to put yourself in another person’s position and imagine what you would feel, think, or do if you were in that situation. Perspective taking helps children to be more successful as adults because they are better able to deal with other people. Seeing and understanding the world from someone else’s point of view is an important life skill you can teach children to build healthy and satisfying relationships. Explore more about perspective taking.
