Phillips Elementary

Keeping Families in the Know

Our Vision

At Phillips, learning is at the heart of everything we do. We will challenge ourselves to dream more and achieve more.

Kinder Orientation

Do you have a kindergarten student that will be joining us at Phillips in the Fall?

If so, come join us on Thursday, May 4th, for Kinder Orientation. You will get to meet our kindergarten teachers and they will give you the inside scoop on what you can expect your child's first year of elementary school to look like. Please bring your kindergarten student! They will meet several teachers and get a tour of the school! =)

We will see you on Thursday from 6-7 in the cafeteria.
