Principal's Message

Thank you to everyone who attended our Fiesta de Octubre event last night! It was a huge success! It was truly amazing to see our community come together! Our students and families had a wonderful time! We are so appreciative to our Specialist teachers for organizing the student performances, the PTG for sponsoring the food, and the amazing parents who set up tables with crafts, food, and games for everyone to enjoy!

  • No school on Monday, 10.10 - this is a teacher work day!
  • The Boys & Girls Club will be open all week (including Monday)!

Halloween Costume Recycling/Collection

Do you have Halloween costumes or dress-up clothes that your children have outgrown or no longer wear? If so, please drop them off in the school office before October 17th. We are working on a Halloween Costume donation drive and plan to host an afternoon/evening later in October for students to pick out a gently used costume. This not only helps reduce waste in our community but also provides for families who may not be able to afford a Halloween costume.
