School Picture Day!

Summer Challenge Celebration!

On Friday last week, we had a socially distanced ice cream sundae celebration for students that completed their summer reading and math challenge! We had 54 students that rose to the challenge! We even had a limbo dance party...check out a few pictures!

Super Reader Strengths

Each morning, our students participate in a "morning meeting" where teachers focus in on helping our students with social/emotional skills and being a part of a family within their classroom. They also teach a strategy that will help our students become "super readers" based on the book Every Child a Super Reader. For the months of August and September, we are talking about using our CURIOSITY. Here's a way you can help with this at home: Ask your child an open-ended question today: What do you wonder about? Share what you wonder about too. Curiosity helps children grow as learners.

Technology Fee

Pay the Tech It Home fee right here! The $20 fee must be paid annually. To pay for device insurance fee of $20, parents must use MySchoolBucks on a computer. Please do not use the MySchoolBucks app on your phone as that payment will only go towards your lunch account and the app payments will NOT go to your device. Just use a computer and view our School Store for a list of purchases like our $20 tech insurance fee.
