Math and Reading STAR Reports

STAR reports are used to screen students for reading and math achievement levels. The results share with the school how your student is progressing and areas we can support them in. Students completed their first round of STAR and the results went home with your student on Friday.

Welcome to the PTA Corner!

Want to vote on the budget? You must be an active PTA Member to cast a vote, so join here before the meeting:

Why does the PTA matter? Every penny earned through donations, fundraising, and volunteering goes straight into our classrooms, clubs, organizations, and programs. It benefits YOUR CHILD. The PTA supports each teacher with a $250 grant to cover materials for their classroom, purchases new books to diversify the collections in our media center/classrooms/support programs, after school clubs and activities to engage and stimulate new ways of connecting and learning, school wide programs to bring celebrate diversity and global learning, athletic/music/art equipment and supplies, and subscription services to engage students in active learning, among many other items.
