We will be hosting Parent-Teacher Conferences on 10/18 and 10/19. Educators will connect with you to set up a conference time.

Family in Need

We have a family who has experienced a tragic loss this past week. If you are able, please consider supporting them by going to THIS GoFund Me page.

Elementary Athletics

We need your help spreading the word and encouraging parents and students to register for elementary sports. Attached are the steps required to register for fall, winter, and spring sports. 4th and 5th graders can participate in one sport per season. Before registering, users must create an account using this link. Watch this video for a tutorial on how to create an account. Once a user has created an account, they can subscribe to their school.

If you, or students or parents have any questions about registering for elementary sports or if you know of someone who is interested in an elementary sport coaching opportunity, contact Brandan Lane at laneb@district65.net.
