Nuts and Bolts:

Talent Show: The talent show will be in the auditorium on Tuesday, May 17th @ 10:00. All talent show acts should report to the auditorium at 9:30 (please talent show line up flyer below). We will be using the stage so the audtiorium computer lab will not be able to be used this week. Here is the time and order in which we will call grade levels to the audtitorium to ensure primary students are in front:

9:48: KDG

9:50: 1st grade

9:52: 2nd grade

9:54: 3rd grade

9:56: 4th grade

9:58: 5th grade

We will start the show promptly at 10:00. Please be lined up and prepared to leave your classrooms at the times listed above. Mrs. Medina will call you down one grade level at a time.

Benefits Update for 2016-2017: It's that time again! Please join us on, May 31, 2016 for our annual Benefits Open Enrollment Meeting at Pathway Academy 3:30pm. This is the time to review current benefits information and updates, make any add-on, ask questions and make changes. Meet in the library.
