It's Almost That Time...

Greetings Spartan Families,

It is with great humility and excitement that I write this letter to welcome you to another wonderful school year! The first day of school is Monday, August 29th for all 1st through 5th grade students and I can’t wait to see the smiling faces of all of your children!

We will begin receiving children each day at 8:45am

and we begin dismissal at 3:35pm

with buses usually pulling off no later than 4:05pm.

Students arriving after 9:00a.m. will be marked tardy and

will need to enter through the front of the building escorted by an adult.

Parents are not allowed to escort their students to the classrooms. There will be many staff members present to receive students and direct them to their classrooms. In order to ease your fears and possibly have some of your questions answered before the start of school, I strongly encourage you and your child(ren) to attend our Back to School BBQ on Wednesday, August 24th from 5pm – 7pm. This will be a great opportunity to meet our staff and take a self-guided tour through the building. We will also have food, music, and games!

School Supplies

While we provide a large number of school supplies for students, you can help us out by making sure that your child has:

pencils and erasers

one box of crayons


glue sticks

composition notebooks


Breakfast and Lunch are provided FREE OF CHARGE for all students!

All students will have access to a free breakfast and lunch every day!

Be mindful that even if your child brings breakfast and/or lunch with them, we CANNOT DENY students access to the meals that we have in school, so if you do not want them to eat a school breakfast/lunch or have concerns about the possibility of them eating a double lunch (the one that bring from home and what we offer in school) and ending up with a tummy ache, please have that conversation with your scholar. :-)
