A Note from Mrs. Mathe

We are so excited for this weekends carnival! Thank you to all that have donated and volunteered to make this event special for our community! See you all tomorrow at the Candyland Carnival!

As you stroll around the carnival, please take a look at our lost and found. There are more clothing items and accessories than ever before! Be sure to claim your child's lost items as all items will be donated at the end of the school year.

As a reminder, if you join our car line, we ask that you enter from the north or south bound lanes of Cochran's Crossing. We have observed many cars enter the Cochran's Green neighborhood and loop around to cut across the street to our line. This not only creates a safety issue for families in the neighborhood, it also creates frustration to the families that have been waiting in line as asked. Please do your part and keep our car line safe and orderly.

One last note on safety. This week a Montgomery County Sheriff stopped by with a concern about families, including students and parents, walking in the streets on the way home instead of using the sidewalks. This is not only a safety concern, it is a traffic violation, which a ticket could be issued. Please utilize the sidewalks when walking/biking/scootering to and from school. The safety of our community is paramount!

PAWS-itive Awards

Today we recognized students for achieving their goals in math, reading and for showing optimism. Congratulations to all of our award winners!!!
