Forms from the office!

Boundary exempt forms have gone home! If your child is on a boundary exempt this school year, please fill this out and send it back to the office ASAP.

Also, we have sent home the letter of intent for the 2021-2022 school year. We need these turned in as soon as possible.

Both of these forms help us so much for the 2021-2022 school year. We really appreciate your cooperation in getting these back to us.

Registration for next year will open July 8th online. This date may change and we will keep you updated as we hear. Everyone must register and the earlier you do this the better for everyone!

PE "Active"-ities

Healthy Futures: The April Calendar has gone home with students!! This calendar is due by Friday, April 30th. There is a deadline to enter them in the computer and if they are not turned in on time the system locks and late students will not get their prize. Please be mindful of the calendar deadlines. If you need ideas on activities to do, go to www.playeveryday.alaska.gov . (This is a voluntary program as I know many families are busy after school.) Parents, you are encouraged to get healthy and active with your kids as well!! This is the FINAL calendar of the school year!!!


Field Day Help Needed!!!

Each year we put on a Field Day for our students during the last few days of school. There are many stations for them to choose from and we need parents to help run them! (We will not be able to take as many helpers as previous years due to our Covid mitigation plan. Please make sure to contact Mrs. Bishop soon to make sure you are on the list.) This years Field Day is Wednesday, May 19. K-2 Students will participate from 9:30-11:30, and grades 3-5 will go from 1:30-3:15. If you are available to help, please contact Mrs. Bishop!! Volunteer opportunities are limited, please get your name on the list soon to make sure we can use you!!
