"Where it's always a great day to be a Bison!"
A Note from Ms. Marlatt
We want to thank all parents who contributed to our Staff Appreciation Week! We felt cared for and appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to volunteer, send your teacher something special and for showing your appreciation.
It is hard to believe, but the end is here! In 2 short weeks. we will be saying goodbye for the summer. It has been an incredible year and we are grateful for every minute we have had together. We hope you continue to pay attention to attendance (on time and every day!) for the last 2 weeks of school so we can all finish strong!
This edition of the BisoNews is full of information for end-of-year and for summer. Please take a few minutes to read all of the information shared so you don't miss out on any possible opportunities!
Finally, we hope to see you all during our Field Day on Friday. We hope the weather will hold so our Bison can enjoy the day.
I will send out one final BisoNews on the last day of school - as a way to close down the year and looking forward to our next year together.
Thank you for sharing your children with us!
Field Day - This friday! 5/19/23
Field Day games will take place from 8:30am to 10:50am for K-2 and 1pm to 3pm for 3rd and 4th graders.
All activities will take place outside in the back field. We have a select number of 5th graders who will be volunteering to help run stations.
Cell Phone Policy - a note from Ms. Sainz
Even though we are a couple of weeks to the end of the school year, we wanted to share this reminder.
Cell phone policy reminder:
Cell phones should always be in your student's backpack while on campus. If your student takes out their phone in the classroom or while on campus, a staff member will take their phone and bring it to the office. The phone must be picked up in the office by a parent or guardian. This information has been shared with staff, students, and guardians.
Back-to-School Night - mark your calendars now!
We are looking forward to seeing all our amazing Bison at Back-to-School night for the new 23-24 school year. You will get a chance to meet administration, meet your teacher, meet our PTO, bring school supplies and tour the school.
August 8th, 2023 - 4:30pm - 6:30pm
Free Summer Meals!

The Great Second Creek Cereal Domino Run - Can you Help?
WE NEED YOUR CEREAL BOXES!
On May 23rd we will be doing our very first Second Creek Cereal Domino Run. You can watch something similar HERE. We will be having some fun with our students AND donating to a local food bank.
How can families help?
Please bring 2 boxes of cereal to your classroom teacher. Cereal boxes must be new - unused and unopened. We will donate all the cereal once the run is done.
We will go Facebook live for the event, so watch for more details soon!
This year, we have been asked to limit the amount of people in the gym for both ceremonies. We have fire codes we must follow, and we are concerned with everyone's safety. Due to these concerns and after meeting with our Fire Marshal and district personnel, we have been asked to limit guests to the following:
- 2 guests per student. Infant/toddler siblings are okay to join. No school-age siblings are allowed. Tickets will go home on Thursday 5/18. Please check with your student.
5/16 - All Star Bison Strong Parade
5/18 - PK Graduation
5/18 - Graduation/Continuation tickets go home!
