Attendance Reminder

If your student is out sick or for an appointment, please remember to call the office or send a note with your child. If we do not hear from you as to why your child was out, the absence will be considered unexcused. Our attendance is taken at 10:00 each day. If your child is not here at that time, he or she will be counted absent. Students are required to attend school 90% of school days.

Box Tops

Don’t forget to keep sending those box tops. Mrs. Sykora’s kinder grade class was the winner for the month of December. The top 3 classes at the end of the year will win a class party!

Career Day

Career day will be Friday, April 20. Career day is a special day for our students to help them start thinking about their futures by hearing about careers from the parents of our students. If you have an interesting career, we would love to have you participate. Be on the lookout for more information from our counselor about this event.


Just a reminder that our entire drop off and pick up is considered a school zone so there should be NO CELL PHONE use in these areas including texting or talking on the phone. This applies to the parking lot area as well. We have had a few near misses including one of our teachers almost getting hit because someone was on a cell phone and not paying attention. We want to be sure everyone including staff, students, and parents stay safe!
