Based on our student vote, our theme for our mixer will be "Prom," and we are serving burgers and fries for dinner! We try to give the kids what they ask for, so............come dressed up for a fun night of dancing, activities, dinner, dessert, and good times with friends! Registration forms are being sent home today and must be submitted by September 16th!

Student Council

Our Student Council has begun their work for the year! Currently 6th grade is running the program and will be adding members from the younger grades in October. We excited about all of the great leadership and projects they are bringing to our school!

Extra Clothes

Please ensure that your student always has a change of clothes in their backpack/cubby/locker in case of accidents or spills.

In addition, if you are ever getting rid of bottoms (pants, shorts, skirts) or underwear, we would love to add them to our extra clothes.

Caine's Arcade Global Cardboard Challenge

Our 2nd-6th grade students have begun their work on the Caine's Arcade Global Cardboard Challenge. This is a national challenge and will culminate with the display of their projects on the National Day of Play on October 7th.

They are working in small groups to design arcade games using cardboard and other recyclables while being creative and innovative. We are excited to see their problem solving in action!

Parking Lot

Please be reminded that the fire lanes must not be blocked at any times. You may park in any parking spaces or in the parking lanes against the building.

Also, please remember that we always open our gates for access to the parking lot at Covenant Methodist Church (just behind out school) during any school events.

Enrichment Programs

We still have a few spaces remaining in our enrichment programs. Do not miss the opportunity to join one of these great programs. Registration information available in both offices.
