MAP Testing

This week students will be taking their Winter MAP test in Reading and Math. This nationally normed assessment will be used by teachers to determine placement for small group instruction for the winter term.


Please be sure your child is at school on their MAP testing day. Your child's schedule will be communicated by their teacher.


Thank you for your support!

Santa's Workshop


Get ready for our kids to shop ‘til they drop!


This year the PTO is excited to be partnering with a company called Penguin Patch to give our kids the opportunity to buy reasonably priced presents for their family, friends, and loved ones!


  • Items priced anywhere from a quarter to several dollars
  • Affordable gifts while teaching kids how to budget
  • Open each morning and afternoon the entire week of December 10-14
  • Extended hours at Milk and Cookies with Santa December 14
  • Next day replenishment of sold-out items
  • Gift bags included


We’re looking for volunteers to help man the tables. If you'd like to help, please go to http://signup.com/go/YphkDuC to sign up for a time!


Thank you!

Car Pickup Times

Dismissal begins at 2:30 every day.


Students who are not picked up by 2:50 may be taken to the front office for pickup. At that time, parents must come in to the office to sign your child out.


Thank you for your cooperation.
