Veteran's Day

We had a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the military veterans that belong to our students on Wednesday. It was so nice to celebrate them and hear them share their stories. Thank you for all our veterans do for our country and for our students.

Weekly Reminders

  • As we are moving into cooler weather, all children should bring a coat each day for recess times. Please make sure that your child's coat is placed in their backpack, cubby, or locker when they arrive at school. In order to prevent the spread of illness during the winter season, we want to prevent these items from touching each other.
  • Our Thanksgiving feasts will be held on Thursday, November 19th during lunch times. Parents are welcome to join us for lunch.
  • All elementary and after school students need to sign up if your child will be attending on Wednesday, November 25th. We do not have instructional classes on that day. The sign up forms are in the sign in books in the office; students must register for the day if they are attending. The deadline to register for that day is Tuesday, November 17th.
  • Progress reports will be sent home with all elementary students on Thursday, November 19th.
