NEW! Spring Chess Club

More than just a game, chess helps kids think ahead, visualize their goals, treat others with respect and learn from their mistakes. Starting Wednesday, April 10, a 6-week chess club will be open to students, including those new to the game and those who already have experience playing. Club fee is $84 and chess equipment will be provided. Minimum of 10 students needed to run the program. See attached flyer for more information. Register online at Scholarships available for those unable to afford the fee. Questions? Please contact Carrie Zarotney at


Proper Shoes

For the safety of all students, please wear proper shoes to PE class. Tennis shoes are best! In the warmer weather kids like to wear flip flops and sandals and in the winter boots are often necessary. During these times, pack tennis shoes in your backpack so you can change before coming to PE.

PE classes outside

Please plan to dress appropriately to be outside in PE. This means that in the morning students shoes may get wet from the dew (pack extra socks or shoes to accommodate the problem of having wet shoes/socks all day). You may also want to wear sun screen to school since we will be outside whenever possible!
