In order to receive a wrist band from their teacher they need to be in good academic standing and have no behavior concerns. When student's arrive at the game they will need to show their wrist band and pay $5.00. Parents are required to be with their students at all times.

October Count

October Count for grades Kinder-8th has officially ended. October count for preschool will run October 25th-November 8th and the official count day is November 1st. It is imperative that students are at school each and every day. Our attendance through October Count helps fund our school and district. We are also going to award a pizza party to the class with the best overall attendance! We greatly appreciate your cooperation in ensuring your students are present and on time each day!
