Growing Kind Hearts & Minds While Inspiring Personal Success

From the Principal

Hello Families,


May your Thanksgiving be filled with family time and good food. Our Staff is so THANKFUL for all of you! We have had a great couple of days with being kind to our friends. We had second graders building a balloon parade just like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade that they were able to show our kindergarteners and staff. We were able to supply several families with food for the holidays thanks to the generosity of our community. The students will be coming back to a structured week of lessons on December 2nd. The week of December 9th we are asking for your help in providing quality sleeps for our Mid-Year assessments.


Educationally yours with Blessings of the Holidays,


Tiffany Jackson, Principal

Reasons to READ Aloud to Your Child

Reading aloud to your child is an activity you can do to promote his or her future reading ability. It is also a special bonding moment between you and your child that is a cherished ritual for many. Whether you choose a book from your child’s bookshelf or one from your local library, sharing this special read-aloud time with your child will benefit them in numerous ways!

Building Healthy Communities Update: Tis The Season For Healthy Eating

We’re entering the holiday season and your child’s class might be having a holiday party. Are you looking for a healthy food to send to school for a classroom celebration? Ideas: red and green grapes, red and green apples, or other fruits you can find at a good price. Fruit cups are fancy and delicious, just put together any fruits which are cut in to bite-size pieces. Bagels and light cream cheese are filling, and string cheese adds a protein dense dairy food to the party. Adding a sliced up lemon or lime gives water a nice flavor and is an inexpensive way to provide a beverage.
