What do you sell? Mostly bracelets and sets of bracelets, necklaces, rings

How long have you been making jewelry? Not long, I started in August

Where did the idea of starting a jewelry business come from? I wanted to start my own business but the idea of making jewelry and bracelets came from TikTok videos I saw.

We will provide instruction at Armstong through a 100% In-Person learning model. To address student learning loss, we have created vertical teams that will allow fluid student groups based on needs and strengths.

Our teams are:

Discovery Crew- Ms. Williams (KDG), Mrs. Session (1st), Mrs. Stevenson (2nd)

Enterprise Crew - Ms. Reese (KDG), Dr. Kendall (1st), Ms. Mast (2nd)

Atlantis Crew - Mrs. Becker (PreK), Mrs. Johnson (KDG), Mrs. Patterson (1st)

Endeavor Crew - Ms. Litzinger (3rd), Mr. Keppel (4th), Ms. Politte (5th)

Columbia Crew - Mrs. Lindsey (3rd), Mrs. Jeffords (4th), Mrs. Edison (5th)

Challenger Crew - Mrs. Pratte (3rd), Ms. Roberts (4th), Mrs. Owen (5th)

Armstrong Elementary School is named after the Astronaut Neil Armstrong. Therefore, we believed our team names should recognize the 6 space shuttles that went on missions to space. Our overarching theme this year is "Armstrong is out of this World".

HSD Breakfast and Lunch Menus

Free/Reduced Meal Application

Although ALL of our students will receive free breakfast and lunch, we encourage all of our families to apply for free and reduced meal benefits. Completing the application removes the burden of paying for a meal when eligible for a reduced price or even free. Completing the application also assists with the P-EBT benefits for covering food costs at home. A new application must be completed each school year. Please know that the information you provide on the application is confidential and only used to determine eligibility.
