The Wall of Fame for Shoe Tying for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Graders

If your Kinder, 1st Grader, and/or Second Grader can tie his/her shoes, please notify Coaches Mirizzi & Mayes because they want to honor this accomplishment in the school gym on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


Once notified of the student's successful shoe-tying accomplishment, we will provide your student with a paper shoe to color, take the student's photo, and then post the photo and customized paper shoe on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


It's going to be really exciting to see our young Tigers on the WALL OF FAME!

Brrrrrr! It's cold, and we may have all of your coats!

Be sure to claim your Lost & Found items by noon December 20! Unclaimed Lost & Found items will be donated to charity.


Our Lost & Found is running over with all manner of lovely sweaters, sweatshirts, and coats. We also have lots of water bottles, lunch boxes, and even eyeglasses.


If you are missing any of your worldly goods, please stop by and check our Lost & Found. It could well be that your missing items are here.
