Please pay attention and use extra care in the parking lot during the mornings when dropping students off for school. There is no cell phone use in the parking lot. Make sure to drive slowly, drop your child off on the curbside along the sidewalk, and watch for parents and students crossing traffic from the lot to the building. Your patience in the parking lot each and every day is greatly appreciated.

Book Review - Priscilla's Predicament...the Worrywart Woes

A group of us read a book called Priscilla’s Predicament…Worrywarts Woes. In the book, Priscilla worries about many things such as missing the bus, her hair looking funny, and missing her test. She worried so much she turned into a warthog and went to the nurse. The nurse said to take deep breaths and to start by not worrying about things you can't control. The nurse also told her “worrying won't change things”. In the end, Priscilla realized it was just a dream and that she did not really turn into a worrywort. If you find that you worry a lot and are looking for some strategies to feel better then check out this book! We all give this book 4 out of 5 stars.



Happy READING!

It is not safe to walk between cars and in front of oncoming traffic

For the safety of our parents and students, we ask that you do not park your car and walk your child through the parking lot to the door. It is not safe. There are two lanes of traffic; one that stops to drop/pick up students and the other a passing lane. It is hard to see parents and students walking between cars when someone is driving in the passing lane. We ask that you stay in your car and use the drop off line. And as always pull all the way up to the DuJardin sign on Euclid.

Box Tops for Education

Even though we are not physically collecting Box Tops for Education this year, you can still collect them and submit them digitally. Please do not send any Box Tops to school this year.

This is very easy to do. Buy a product, scan your receipt, earn cash for your school.
