Classroom Needs

We are in need of earbuds for our students. Students use their Chromebooks daily and need earbuds for a few of their programs. If you are able to donate some dollar store earbuds, 4th grade would greatly appreciate it. We have found that the earbuds from the dollar store with the flat cords seem to hold up longer. Thank you for any support you are able to give!

Great Expectations

Each week, we focus on a life principle to help us learn how to be good citizens. Take some time each week to discuss these principles with your student.

GE Principles for the upcoming week:

Life Principle: integrity - acting according to a sense of right and wrong

"Knowing what must be done does away with fear" - Rosa Parks
