A note from the principal's desk...
Lastly, one thing that I never knew to be possible is that lost clothing actually multiplies! WOW, our Lost and Found is out of control. Please have your kids check the lost and found if you are missing something. We will be donating any unclaimed clothing to local clothing pantries in a few weeks.
Please reach out if you have any questions!
Have a great week everyone!

A message from our food service director
Please complete a school lunch application if your income has changed since you last filled one out or if you have not yet completed one this year. This information is super helpful for R-P funding, but also necessary for food service to have if an additional round of P-EBT cards go out. Complete the form online at lunchapp.com. THANK YOU!
Jackie Blomeke, MBA, RDN
