Don't Forget -- No School Monday OR Tuesday! See you Wednesday!

Calling all Incoming Kindergarten Kiddos!

Do you or someone you know have a child who will be 5 years old on or before September 1st? We are looking to gather preliminary information about our incoming vikings and wish to welcome all to our Kindergarten Parent Information Night (adults only, please) on Thursday, March 9th from 6:00-7:00pm. Parents are encouraged to bring with their child's birth certificate and two proofs of residency (tax bill, utility bill, lease agreement, etc.). We will have initial paperwork to be completed for parents that evening, but you can find links to the forms below as well. Please also pop into our Google form to provide contact information so we are able to reach out to you with any updates to share! Our kindergarten team is looking forward to welcoming our new batch of youngsters to the building! Thank you for your help in getting the word out.

Please note that filling out these forms and submitting residency/birth certificate is only the first step in the registration process. Parents will still need to complete an online process as well (May 2017).

2nd Grade Fine Arts Night -- Last Minute Reminders for Parents

We are very excited about the interest in our first annual Folk Night which will take place on Thursday, February 23! The evening will feature activities in Art, Dance and Song, Drama and Spanish. Here are some reminders:

  • Please arrive with your child in the South Gym at 5:45 p.m. where you will find your name tag and the schedule. There will be a brief introduction before everyone moves to the first rotation.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to be "child-like" for the evening!
  • Due to the large number of participants, and in order to give everyone an opportunity to experience each of the activities, we anticipate that the evening will end by 7:30 p.m..

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!

Jennifer Pease, Spanish Teacher
