Water Bottle Donation!

Mrs. Klepper and Ms. Bramble happily accepted a donation of 500 water bottles from Jonathan Qvarnstrom of For All Seasons Behavioral Health. The bottles say "Be Kind to Your Mind" and they help celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month during May. Students also participated in activities to promote positive thinking and healthy minds provided by Lauren Weber of For All Seasons.

Thank you for this generous donation!

2022-2023 School Meal Information

As of June 30th, 2022, the United States Department of Agriculture waivers will expire. This means that for next school year, all students receiving Free Breakfast and Free Lunch will end. At the beginning of the school year, the Free/Reduced applications will be sent home to anyone that would like to see if your family qualifies for this benefit. All students will need to have money at the time of school meals until they are approved otherwise.
