Water Day Canceled!

Due to bad weather, the water day has been canceled. The wind is supposed to pick up at 10 am and be really cold. As an alternative activity, we will be playing board games and movies. If you have a board game that would be fun please send it with your child. I will monitor the games and make sure all the pieces end up back in the box.

We will still have pizza and snacks at school today. Dismissal is 12:55. Thank you!


Pizza Money

Thank you for all that have donated supplies for the end of the year party we are still short and would appreciate any donations towards pizza.

Note: we will be headed back to the school at 12:30. Please pick your students up from school as usual.

We are Looking for GUEST SPEAKERS!

Are you interested or know someone who is?

The students have been learning all about animal defense mechanisms, poetry, and Idaho History this year. We are looking for some guest speakers that could enhance these topics and add to students learning. If you know someone or have a special talent that you could speak to the kids about, please contact me at 208-317-9077.
