Cookie Grams

Each year, we have a Cookie Gram fundraiser to support Relay for Life. If you would like to send a Cookie Gram to your little one, you may do so by completing the order form sent home recently. The last day to place an order is February 4th. Cookie Grams will be delivered on February 12th.

Science Fair Family Night

Instead of having a face to face meeting, we have posted the video on our school Facebook page to assist with preparation for our upcoming science fair. All 3rd students are required to complete and project while 1st and 2nd graders have the option to do a project. You can also watch the video by clicking on the link below. The first 50 people to watch and complete the survey will receive a free Science Fair Board. We hope you find this beneficial.

Name that Mascot

There was a recent conversation about our school mascot, who we call bulldog puppy, and the fact that he does not have a name. So, we have asked our students to help us out. Over the next few weeks, students will be nominating names for our school Mascot. We will have the top four names after this week. Students will vote on January 29th. I will keep you posted on the progress.
