Kindness and Compassion Week

Thank you to all who were able to donate during our Kindness and Compassion week. The students had a great time dressing up on our Spirit Days!

All donations will be distributed to community members who are in need.


This is just a reminder that we do not dismiss students after 3:00 on full days and 11:35 on half days from school. If you need to pick your student up early from school, please come before 3:00 or 11:35. You will be asked to join the car rider line if you come after these times.

Helping Children Cope with Tragedy

Young children shouldn’t have to learn about tragic events, but they do. Some are exposed to disasters firsthand, as victims. Others discover the tragedies by watching the news or overhearing adults or other children discussing the events. It is a sad fact that all children need to know how to deal with tragic events—and their parents and caregivers need to know how to help them cope.

The article below gives some tips on how to help children cope with tragedy.
