Remote Learning Update
As we continue to navigate remote learning, we reflect on things we can do better and ways in which we can work together for students to meet with greater success.
Teachers are increasing their availability through Google Meet, especially with the addition of a virtual ASL. They are sending invitations directly to their students, please support them by encouraging your student(s) to attend.
Please also let us know how your student(s) are doing. While we can see the work submissions, we can't see the emotions behind the work. We continue to be here to support them, whether it's through teachers, guidance, or administration. Please keep the feedback coming so we can continue to shape our practices to best serve our students.

Download the new Box Tops app and keep earning for our school! While you will be able to clip and send them in the traditional way while products remain on store shelves, earning 10 cents for the school with each Box Top you send in (and these really add up!), we will be shifting toward individual online submission and an all-school goal. Please download the app and, you’ll simply need to scan your receipt and all such items will be recorded—with just one scan. Scanning these receipts also gets us entered in contests that win bonus Box Tops for our school!
