Reminder: There’s no supervision at the playground before 8:30 a.m.
Please remember that there is no supervision behind the school or on the playgrounds in the morning. The school staff supervision begins at 8:30 a.m. and is focused on the front of Briar Glen, where kids are entering. If your child wants to use the playground before 8:30 a.m., a family member should stay to supervise. If you drop your student off before that time, they will not have school supervision on the playground.
We appreciate your support in keeping all kids safe!
The new playground looks great! Thank you to all our students, staff, families, and the PTC for raising enough money for all kids to enjoy.
During TEAM DAY students worked in small groups and wrote & illustrated ideas for ways to “Help the Earth”. Below are winning groups per grade level. Great job everyone!
The Bulldog Run is back! Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 22. The deadline to register is Friday, April 29, 2022.
Please complete your 2022-23 registration as soon as possible
