A note from Ms. Waymack

Brrrr! It is cold outside. It is definitely the season of warm coats, gloves and hats! If you are "missing" any items, please have your child check lost and found. We have obtained quite the collection of lost and found items.

If the temperature and wind chill are above 32 degrees, students will go outside for recess. Please be sure your child dresses appropriately!

Cabot Classroom Teachers with Heart

Cabot Classroom Teacher Association (CTA) has teamed up with Centennial Bank in Cabot to honor our district's most outstanding educators with the first annual "Cabot CTA Teachers with Heart Award".
