Be reminded as you start any holiday shopping that you can do your holiday shopping through We sent a reminder letter last week, but you can do your online shopping and a portion of what you spend goes back to our school!

In addition, if you send the emails to friends and family to use the site, they send gift cards to our teachers for classroom supplies. In addition, we are so grateful for the donations that were made to our classrooms. Our teachers were able to use those and order great things for their students to use in the classrooms! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Parking Lot

Please be reminded that our parking lot is a community space, and our most important goal is that we are able to keep our students and families safe. Please keep your speed to no more than 10 mph and park only in designated spots. You are able to park in the designated spaces against the perimeter of the parking lot; however, please keep your car between the marked white lines.

Thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe!

Math and Literacy Night

We had a wonderful night at Math and Literacy Night last night and loved getting to see our parents and students work together to achieve great things and have so much fun together! We hope that all of our families that were here had as much fun as we did! Thank you for participating in a fun evening!

Parent's Night Out - November 30, 2018

We will be hosting a Parent's Night Out on Friday, November 30th from 6:45-10:00 p.m. Registration forms are being sent home today.

Do not miss this opportunity to have your child(ren) spending the evening with us having dinner, activity, movie, and so much fun - all with our staff! This is a great opportunity for some holiday shopping and a quiet evening without even having to order any kids meals!

We look forward to having your children with us for this fun evening!

Cookie Dough Fundraiser Pick Up

As a reminder, all cookie dough fundraiser products will be available for pick up Thursday afternoon in the gymnasium. They are unable to be kept refrigerated, so they will need to be picked up that afternoon anytime after 3:00. Thank you!

Musical Auditions

Our 2nd through 6th Grade elementary students will be performing "Joust" for our spring musical on February 28th.

All students in those grades will be included in the musical; however, we will have auditions for the speaking parts next Wednesday, November 14th. Third through Sixth Grades are eligible to tryout.

Costume Donations

As Halloween is now over, we would love to have any used costumes that you no longer want. These are great to use as dress up for our dramatic play. Please bring them to the office. Thank you!

Thanksgiving Feast

We will be hosting our annual Thanksgiving Feast in our classrooms next Thursday for lunch. Please sign up on your child's door if you would like to join your child for lunch. We will be using the final counts that we receive by today in order to prepare lunch. Thank you!
