A Note from Principal Graham

This is definitely not how we planned on ending the school year but we are so thankful to all our wonderful families for your support through the school closing. We have a lot to celebrate this school year so please read below to check out all the opportunities.

If you still need to pick up your child's belongings that were at school, we have them. On Thursday, June 4th we will have another drive-thru opportunity to drop off packets and pick-up the belongings along with other items. It is also a great chance for us to have one more wave goodbye wishing everyone a safe and happy summer. We hope you can join us either from 7:30-10:00 AM or 4-6 PM.
