Spring Clubs

Last Friday, we started our new clubs and it was all the buzz. We offered some of our classic clubs like Lego, Minecraft, and Basketball. We also have several new clubs like Slime Making, Harry Potter, and Become a Teacher. It was so much fun and we can't wait until our next club date!

Animal Defense Mechanisms Presentations

Last Monday, our fourth graders presented their Animal Defense Mechanism slideshow and they also created clay models of their animals. The "choose your adventure" style was fun and the students were proud of their work! Great job fourth graders for your hard work and thank you to the parents who were able to attend!

Parent Teacher Conferences

We will be hosting conferences on Wednesday, February 15th and Thursday, February 23rd from 3:00 - 6:30 pm. Conferences can either be held in person or over the phone.
