Each week the Little Giant News is published through an online Smore newsletter. In it, you will find important school and community information. Please take a moment each week to read and review this newsletter so that you can stay up to date on important events that are happening in your school and school district.

*****Since this event requires the use of our cafeteria and gym space, students will be eating lunch in the classroom. A hot lunch option will not be provided. We will serve a sack lunch with Peanut Butter & Jelly as the main entree. If your child does not like Peanut Butter & Jelly, you may send in a lunch if you would like.
Congratulations to our Little Giants of the Week!
We are also proud of our students that continue to master their 100 sight words!
Little Giants- your growth is MIGHTY!
English Learner Recognition
When a student demonstrates mastery of both their native language and the English language, they test out of the English-Learner program. We are so proud of our FIVE STUDENTS that have tested out of this program! You have shown you can fluently speak TWO languages!
Congratulations to James, Thian Sang, Mery, Vanthabik, and Lizzie!
Getting Down with Momma Goose!
Important Information About Chromebooks and Chargers
I would encourage parents to keep the Chromebook and charger in the backpack unless they are needed for e-learning. If these items are lost, parents will be charged for a replacement.
Charger (damaged, missing)
Chromebook (missing, stolen, damaged beyond repair)
