  • Mr. Thomassen's fifth graders are working on discussing their literary analyses with peers.
  • Scott's teacher candidates are doing their solo teaching and doing a fantastic job! Thank you to our supervising teachers (Mrs. Gonzales, Mrs. Mann, Mrs. Douglas, and Ms. Moore) for preparing and mentoring them so well. Keep up the good work, Ms. Gallegos, Ms. Smith, Ms. Thompson, and Ms. Haack!

1. Go to the website listed above and click the “Upload” button.

2. Click “Choose a File” and select the piece of artwork you’d like to upload.

3. Edit artwork if necessary. Artwork will appear exactly as uploaded so please make sure you have any background cropped out.

4. Click “Next.”

5. Enter your child’s first and last name and click “Search.”

6. Click on your child’s name, enter additional details if you’d like, and click “Finish.”
