Cinco De Mayo Family Night- This Thursday Night!

We are very excited about hosting our last parent night of the year. This Thursday night is full of culture and FUN! We will have games and activities for everyone in the gym. If you want to leave the gym for a little entertainment, we will have a music program performed by our 1st grades at 6:00 in the cafeteria. The first graders have worked hard on their music program and it is sure to be a hit!

We will also have a concession stand for hot dogs and nachos if you need a quick snack supper for your family.

The videos feature real families modeling quick activities that can be done at home to promote success in school!

It is easy to sign up. It took me less than 3 mins. Bringing Up program is for kindergarten through 3rd grade, but 4th grade parents are welcome to signup. It is great information that will still be beneficial.

Lunch Charges in Cafeteria

Student accounts will need to be paid by the last day of school in order to release report cards.

Please help us by keeping your lunch accounts current. You can always bring money personally or send it with your student. Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's name and their teacher's name.

You can also take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch. Pre-K button is below.

Cell Phones Prohibited in Car Lines

Cell phones are prohibited in our car lines.

  • Act 27-51-1609 states “…a driver of a motor vehicle shall not use a handheld wireless telephone while operating a motor vehicle when passing a school building or school zone during hours when children are present and outside the building.”

Help us keep kids safe by not using your phone in the school area.
