Salt Mine Field Trip

Thank you so much to those parents and grandparents who volunteered to drive us to Hutch! We all had a blast and learned a ton about salt.

Please apply sunscreen before coming to school.

It is optional for students to bring: softball/baseball glove and bats, volleyball/net, tennis rackets and balls, frisbees, other sports equipment. NO CELL PHONES ALLOWED! Cameras are permitted but are the sole responsibility of the student.

Wrapping up the End of the Year

What a year! It is crazy to think how fast 5th grade flew by this year. The 5th grade team has truly been blessed to have had your children in class throughout this school year. We are impressed by how the students have grown in so many ways and can't wait to see what their futures bring them. Thank you for entrusting them to us and allowing us to have an influence in their lives.
