Birthday Celebrations

We do not celebrate individual birthdays with food. Please do not send in cakes, cupcakes, candy, etc. This also goes for store-bought items. If you would like to send in a small gift (Pencil, Sticker, eraser, etc) for the student to give out that could be accommodated. Thank you.


Parents and Guardians, please make sure your voicemail box is not full. If a staff member calls and your voicemail box is full we will not be able to leave a message. Thank you.

Box Tops for Education

Did you know that the Box Tops for Education Program is 100% digital and it's an easy way to help earn funds for our PTO? Simply download the Box Tops for Education App to get started and be sure to share the information with your friends and family. We earn money when receipts with eligible items are scanned.
