2022-23 School Calendar (Base Calendar)

Check out next year's school calendar!

6th Grade Bluebonnet Participants

These 6th graders read at least 5 of the 20 books nominated as the 2022 Bluebonnet titles by the Texas Library Association. They all voted for their favorite title and made the bluebonnet garlands. They also got the materials to grow their own bluebonnet garden and each got their choice of one of the Bluebonnet titles to keep. This was open to all 6th graders. Congrats to those who opted in and participated!

New COVID Testing Consent Form

Update from Nurse Thomas

We have switched testing companies we are using for covid-19 rapid tests, which requires us to gather new consent forms. Parents can now fill out consent forms online if they have access to a computer or other device with access to the internet. This is a great change! The form should only take 3-5 minutes to complete online. The link is below along with our school's access code. The access code is required when consenting to testing.

Link to consent form:

Access Code: 0KSB6I
