Principal's Message

Valentine's Day

There have been many questions regarding Valentine's Day. Everyone is excited about this heart-felt day of celebration. Please enjoy the day and include activities. However, remember we are not sharing food items and we are following Covid protocols, including no visitors on campus, masks on, social distancing, etc. Valentine's cards are okay.

Referral Forms

If you are sending a student to the office, or requesting support for students because of discipline, disruption, altercations, etc., please be sure that a referral form accompanies that student, or follows the student by the end of the day. The referral must include, the name, date, detailed information about the incident, etc.

Grades and Progress Reports

All grades should be in for middle school. Progress Reports are due for grades TK - 5.

Spelling Bee

The 11th Annual PTA Sponsored Spelling Bee was a great success yesterday. Thank you to all the parents and staff who made it possible. The winner was David Le. Liv Vuong won second place and Adrian Pham was the third place winner. There were about 45 contestants in all. The event was streamed and recorded so, if you missed it, you will have the opportunity to see it.

Door Decorating Contest - Reflections and Resolutions

Remember, Student Leadership is sponsoring a door decorating contest. The doors will be judged tomorrow. The theme of the contest is Reflections and Resolutions. I have seen several very imaginative and creative doors. There will be winners from TK-2, 3-5 and 6-8. There will be prizes. Doors will be judged on creativity, color, connection to the theme and full class participation.
