NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

Last week's Starstruck performances went very well. Thank you for coming out and supporting the students.


Fourth and fifth grade classes are selecting finalists to participate in our annual spelling bee taking place on Monday, January 14th.


Fourth grade students recently took home sign up and deposit forms for next year's voluntary Fort Bragg science camp. We need to send our deposit to secure our October dates for next year. I am also looking for a couple of fourth grade parents to lead a committee to organize and implement the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances. These dances raise funds to offset the cost of the camp. Please call or email me if you can organize one or both of the dances.
