If your child is a 6th grader, please remember to have your child turn in the required physical along with the updated immunization record to the school nurse.

Parents of 7th and 8th grade students: If your child will be participating in sports this year, they will need a new physical dated after April 1, 2022 and will need to complete the information in Final Forms on our website.


Student immunizations are due to the nurse by Wednesday September 7th. Students that are missing immunizations will be excluded from school starting September 8th and will not be allowed to return until the requirements are met.

Simple Qpon Books

SimpleQpon books went home with the student this week. Our sale is from 8/22-9/7. Books are $20 each. Our school gets $10 profit from each book sold!!

Since our school is responsible for books; if you choose not to participate, please return the book in the envelope in the same condition it was sent home with your child. If the book is not returned, then we will assume that you have decided to purchase it and the $20 payment will be sent in the envelope for the fundraiser.

Prizes & Incentives for participants:

  • Sell 5 books, get a free book (6th). Also, the student will get to attend a pizza party.

  • Each student that sells 7 Books (not including the free book), automatically gets invited to the Game Truck video game party. He/She will also get to Silly String Mrs. Seibert at Beach Bash.

  • Sell 10 books and get an envelope containing $5-$25 in cash.

  • Top Seller for each grade will get $50 cash.
