Yearbook Photo Needs:

I'm wrapping up the last few pages, because my final deadline is coming up.

Thank you to everyone who took and submitted pictures this year.

Look for your photos when the yearbook comes out in May.

Final Yearbook Count

I'm turning in my final count to the plant on February 26. If you preordered, then you're guaranteed a yearbook.

If not, I'll have a small supply of extra copies. I'll continue to sell them, first come, first served.

I anticipate selling out early this year!

SIX FLAGS READING

Six Flags Reading Program is almost over!

All reading logs are due to your child’s teacher on February 22nd.

Each student must read 6 hours to earn a Six Flags ticket

for use this summer. Six hours is only 360 minutes!

We strongly encourage you to send your child home the same way every day. However, we do understand that emergencies do arise. Should you need to change your child's transportation, a hand written note from home is required with a parent signature.
