Winter Parties

Winter parties are at 9am on Friday, December 18th. Please remember that students should not be checked out prior to 10am or they will have a full day absence. We will do classroom checkouts for the winter parties.


We have many wonderful volunteers that are here to help our school and our staff each day. I'm not sure if everyone is aware of two special ladies, Lauren Ryan and Kris Potthoff who are very hands on but also very behind the scenes. Not only do they run the school store but they also take care of hospitality for PTA AND they do the 9 week awards. Recently Lauren had surgery and did not want to miss out helping with 9 week awards (because she knows how much it means to the children and loves to see them receive their rewards) so she asked if they could put the 9 week awards together at her house so that she could help while she was recovering. These two ladies may not always be seen, but they are constantly doing things for our children that you do not hear or may not see. These volunteers are priceless when it comes to running our school. Please thank them when you see them.
