Smarter Balanced Testing

Students in grades 3rd through 8th grades will begin testing the week of April 23rd - May 3rd. Please make sure students are in attendance this week. Please send your children to school well rested and full of a good breakfast. Snacks to send would be those high in protein and carbohydrates and low in sugar such as nuts, jerky or cheese sticks. Thank you.

After School Program

The After School Program is going well! Thanks for using the sign up process. We do have slots available most afternoons. If your child wants to attend the program, check for openings, we would love to fill each night with the maximum number of students which is 15. If you do reserve a spot, moving forward, we will charge you the daily fee even if your child does not come, unless you call us to remove your child from the list. By signing up, you are reserving a spot. Thanks for understanding. Be sure to create a login and register for after school care on the following webpage:

Emergency Lunch

Emergency Lunch - Parents just a reminder to be sure and ask your child(ren) if they have an emergency lunch. I know a few students have already eaten theirs this week.

Student Reminders

Please have students dress in layers and bring a jacket for the unpredictable fall weather.

Students are encouraged to have sunscreen in lockers to apply for outdoor PE and recess. Students should have at least one emergency lunch item in their locker.
