Teacher of the Year Nominees

Congratulations to both Michelle Howisey and Alex Pike! They both were nominated from our site for our Teacher of the Year!

Welcome March....

I have to tell you, I was NOT sad to see February finally end! My goodness the shortest month lasted for 100-days!


Today, we had a fantastic visit from some surrounding elementary school principals to view how ready our site is for students to come onto campus. Our site is READY! I have attached a few photos for you to see what has been going on around campus.


Next week on both Tuesday and Wednesday, we will have picture day, from 3pm-7pm. You must have an appointment to attend. Photos will be taken in the cafeteria with social distancing procedures enforced. Students need to have a mask on at all times (until the actual photo). Here is the link to sign up for your appointment: LINK


As a reminder, the drive-way in front of the office, is OFF LIMITS for drivers. Although one side of the driveway is not blocked off, please do not use this to enter. We have staff on campus and students picking up work. Coming into the driveway the wrong way is not safe and not allowed.


I am so very excited for what March has in store for all of us! I hope to have more updates as the weeks move along.

Read-A-Thon

Congratulations, Eagles, you did it!!!!!!! You really rallied together to make our first Read-a-thon a BIG success THANK YOU!!!!


We’ve officially raised $34,404, which means that Mr. Patrick is getting a pie in the face!!!!


On Monday, 3/8/2021, Mrs. Sanchez will be doing a drawing to find out which two students are the lucky winners to get to do the pieing (not sure that is a word.) The winners will get to choose if they would like to pie Mr. Patrick OR Mrs. Sanchez! (However they both can choose Mr. Patrick.)


A HUGE thank you to both Lindsay Ring and Amanda Collier for their coordination and implementation of such a successful fundraiser!


Couple important reminders:

  1. We will keep the website open for another week, so people can absolutely still donate if they would like. However, the incentives and winners will be pulled based on total donations received by the end of day today, March 5. Incentive winners will be announced early next week.
  2. If you aren’t registered yet, but want a chance to pie Mr. Patrick in the face, you will need to register by the end of today (3/5). Principal Sanchez will be drawing one lucky winner on Monday. You only need to be registered in order to get a ticket to enter.
  3. Remember that every kid who has $100 raised gets an entry into a drawing for a mini Ipad! It’s not too late to make a donation and be entered into this drawing!
  4. Don’t forget to log your reading minutes! There is a $5 ice cream card for every kid in the class who reads the most total minutes!!
  5. I will send a final leaderboard early next week, along with the prize winners.
