Valentine Parties

Please watch for information from your child's teacher about Valentine Parties. These will be held on Friday, February 12, and each classroom will decide the time. We are able to have students bring in Valentines to share with classmates! Please remember to send pre-packaged treats only for food options that day.

Pencil Machines are BACK!

Help fifth grade students raise money for their end-of-year recognition by purchasing pencils! A machine will be located in each grade level hallway. If your child would like to make a purchase, please know we will have COVID safety procedures in place including social distancing and sanitizing before and after use of the machine. Teachers will work with students to determine the best time to buy pencils. GOLD and SILVER winner pencils will be included, and if a student gets a lucky pencil they will receive a prize from the office! We know the students have missed this, so thanks for sending quarters from time-to-time!

River Rocks Needed!

Truman Elementary is asking for River Rock Donations so that we are able to paint Kindness Rocks and add them to the Outdoor Classroom. If you are able to donate river rocks, feel free to drop them by Truman and place them in the box in the entryway to the office anytime before January 26th. Thank you so much for you help!
