The math homework has taken a shift. Please talk to your student about Reflex Math. Your student is required to complete 3 green lights a week. They will complete 1 green light on Monday and 1 green light on Tuesday. This means they need to get 1 green light on EITHER Wednesday or Thursday.

Reflex Math is working on math fluency. They can only get 1 green light a day.


  • School starts promptly at 7:40. Students have morning work in their desk at 7:25. This is an excellent time to get in extra practice.
  • Please ensure your student arrives everyday to school with a charged chromebook and charger.
  • Students need to bring a snack each day. Please avoid messy snacks like hot cheetos and takis.
  • Please check your student's lunch account as lunches are no longer free.

Book Fair is December 12-16

Students will have a preview day with their class on Friday, December 9. Book fair catalogs have been sent home so students can make a budget plan with you.
