Have a wonderful winter break!

PTA Spirit Night!

Thank you for coming to Mooyah's on Thursday night! It was great to see many of you there!

A message from Nurse Julie

The winter season is among us – and with that – lots of later nights, running store to store, and time with family and friends…all opportunities for your child to catch a cold or flu!!! If you haven’t already, take your child for a flu shot!!! Encourage hand-washing – it is the number one thing to prevent the spread of germs!! If your child is running a fever (a temperature 100 degrees or more) – they need to stay home until they have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducers (like Motrin and Tylenol).

Let’s have a happy and HEALTHY winter season!!!

Prizes needed!

We are planning on giving students prizes for following the NRES expectations. We would like to do a drawing every week based on the tickets students earned for great behavior. We will need quite a few prizes that will be included in the drawing. Do you know anyone or any business that might donate to us? If so, please contact Oliver Mujica at
