Holiday Help

As we enter into a very family-centered holiday season, we want to make sure all families have what they need. If your family might need help for Thanksgiving, please feel free to reach out to our confidential email:

However, if you are interested in helping others, we would love to hear from you as well. Again, using is your best way to contact us for such situations.

5th Grade Nature's Classroom Parent/Guardian Meeting

The 5th Grade Team will be hosting an informational meeting about Nature's Classroom on Wednesday, November 17, at 6:30 pm. The meeting will be held in the JRB cafeteria and will last approximately one hour. Topics to be discussed are: when Nature's Classroom (NC) will be held, what exactly is NC, what safety measures are in place at NC regarding covid 19, what the cost of the program is, the fundraiser to offset families' cost for the program, parent chaperones, and more. Childcare will not be available. We understand some folks will be at Paint Night, and that is certainly fine. If you are unable to attend, an informational packet will be available.

Drop-Off Reminder

Please remember that drop-off is from 8:20-8:30 (we usually go a little long). If you come late and there is not an adult in the circle, please drive around to the front entrance and sign your child in.
