Family Movie Night

Our Family Movie Night begins tonight at 7:00 p.m. Our event will go on regardless of weather; we will make a determination later today if we are able to be outside and need to move it inside.

Spring Pictures

Our spring pictures have arrived and will be on sale next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 3:45-6:00 p.m. Please be reminded that the pictures cannot be removed from the school until they are purchased. Thank you.

Reading Month

Our Reading Month Challenge continues! As of yesterday, we were up to 52,285 minutes read, based on the reading logs that we brought to school. As a reminder, we are striving to reach the challenge of 100,000 minutes which will bring the reward of turning Mrs. Michelle into a human ice cream sundae!! We will add a faculty member for every 2000 additional minutes! Minutes can be logged through March 31st, and reading logs must be turned in no later than April 6th.

Electronic Devices

As our world continues to move to more and more electronics, more of our students have personal electronic devices that they bring to school. With all of the wonderful advantages that our children experience with the advancement of technology, there are plenty of negative risks available. Our school devices have an extremely strong firewall to protect our students; however, personal devices on cellular service are different.

In order to provide a safe environment for our students, we have communicated with all of the students that cellular use at school is prohibited, as well as any outside communication (texting, face time, messaging, etc.). If you are in need of communicating to your child (or they in need of communicating to you), it will need to be done through the office.

We appreciate your support of our efforts to keep our children very safe.

Preschool Spring Program

We are excited to let you know that our spring preschool program, for all Intermediate and Pre-Kindergarten, students will be held on Friday, April 21st at 3:00 p.m. in our gymnasium. We look forward to seeing you there!
