We have field trips coming up for Kindergarten, Third, and Fourth grades. Please communicate with your child's teacher for information about permission slips and payment for field trips!

Lunch Information

If you are sending lunch money to school with your child, please write their first and last name on the envelope. This will ensure that the money is credited to the correct account.
