Ice Skating Rink

The students are required to have a helmet, coat, gloves and skates, in order to skate on the skating rink.

Students that want to skate during non-school hours are welcome if they have direct adult supervision. Thank you for abiding by this requirement, without your cooperation the rink may not be available for anyone to use.

Emergency Lunch

Emergency Lunch - Parents just a reminder to be sure and check that your child(ren) still have an emergency lunch in their locker.

School Days Program

Save your home Northwestern Energy Propane receipts! For every gallon you purchase, the school will earn $.02. It doesn't seem like much, but it adds up quickly! We will place a receipt box in the office, all you have to do is bring your original receipts to school and drop them in the box.

Check with your neighbors that may use propane (they don't have to live in our district) and ask them to save their receipts, then you can collect them. Check with businesses in the area, too!

We can earn up to $2000 for our school. The students will have a choice in how the money is spent! Think about how this money can be spent with the money earned from the School Days program! It's like money in the "tank".

Box Tops & Labels for Education Program

Welcome back to school! We will be participating in both the Labels for Education and the Box Tops for Education™ programs again this year. Send clipped labels to school with your child as you collect them and I will submit them. Sign up at to get coupons and stay updated on our school’s earnings. Money raised from Box Tops is used by the Parent Group to fund projects at the school and Labels earnings can be used by the teachers to get supplies for the classroom. Thanks for helping!
