Please note that all playgrounds are closed before school and students should not be playing on the playgrounds, as this is a safety concern due to the lack of adult supervision. All students are expected to line up outside of their classrooms if they arrive before the first bell at 8:12 am. Please assist us in reminding your students to not play on the playgrounds before school. Thank you for your help in keeping our students safe.


Please be sure to search for any of your student's missing items in the Lost and Found. We will be donating any unclaimed items at the end of March.

Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge Update

Thank you to everyone who has donated recyclables to the Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge! For the month of January, we collected 92 lbs. of plastic wrap -- our largest haul yet! We are making excellent progress while keeping plastic out of our homes, the environment, and landfills.

As a reminder, please do not include any plastic containers or food items in the Trex recycling bin. Acceptable plastic wrap should be clean and dry and labeled with recycling logo 2 or 4 or have a plastic wrap logo. Pet food bags, floral wrap, and candy bags are unfortunately not eligible for this program. Kindly remove receipts and cut out shipping labels and stickers prior to recycling, as they will disrupt the sorting machines.

The campaign ends on April 15th, so please continue to drop off your recyclables in the Trex bin located in the Aspen courtyard. Thank you for your support!
