Bus Driver Appreciation Week

The week of February 13 is Bus Driver Appreciation week. Please take a moment to thank your child's bus driver.

Book Fair!

The Book Fair was a great success last week!

We sold $33,350!! That gives us $16,675 back in Scholastic dollars to buy books for the school, teachers, and students!!

We already used $4000 of that during the Book Fair to donate to the programs, teachers, and school library.

Thank you for rounding up your purchase to the whole dollar. We collected $570 that allowed 50 students at our school to shop the Book Fair and get a book that wouldn’t have been able to otherwise!

Thank you to all our volunteers that made the Book Fair possible! We truly appreciate you!

If your student still has money left on an eWallet, or you couldn't make the Book Fair, or your favorite book was sold out at our Book Fair, you can still shop online until Feb 16. Follow the link below and click SHOP NOW.

You can still pre-order the new Dog Man (Twenty Thousand Fleas Under the Sea) from this link too.

Orders over $25 ship free to you!

Scholastic will give back 25% in rewards to our school when you shop online FEB 3 – FEB 16.

Happy Reading!


This week our school community will be focusing on the character strength of Love. Love means you value close relationships with others and being close to people.

The character strength of love represents the way we think, feel, and behave towards the people with whom we have close relationships. When one person loves another person, that person: comforts and makes the other feel safe; sacrifices on the other’s behalf; supports the other during struggles; and places the others' needs ahead of their own. If you love a person, that person makes you feel safe and secure. You can be yourself with that person. You miss that person when they are not around.

On a group level, love is vital for the wellbeing of society. The world is endlessly interconnected. We are all dependent upon each other for survival and happiness. Love produces positive feelings, which help negate loneliness, anxiety, and depression. Without love, we cannot form strong relationships with our families, friends, or communities. A world without love is a dangerous world.

To practice and encourage the character strength of love with your child, please visit the Positivity Project’s P2 for Families (password: P2), where together you will watch a video, read a quote, and talk about the answers to three questions.

Have a wonderful week!

Parent & Student Lunches!

Please only select ONE time period per family. This allows two families an option each day to have lunch with their children.

We are excited to offer the opportunity for parents and visitors to have lunch with students once again. However, in order to ensure safety, manage space limitations, and to ensure the process is successful we must maintain guidelines and expectations for logistics. Please read the expectations and logistics on the sign up.
