Winter Weather is Here!

Winter weather has made its way to the Midwest! We’d like to remind everyone that with the snow and cold temperatures comes the need to send your children to school prepared for the cold and snowy weather. Students who walk to school or wait at school bus stops should be dressed appropriately for cold temperatures and snowy conditions.

STEAM CLUB Update

We currently have three STEAM Clubs in full force!


Mrs. Packard's, I Am Quilt Making Club, is busy writing and creating quilt squares.


Mrs. McClintock's, DaVinci to the Digital Age Club, have been learning about flight and made moveable origami birds.


The Build it! Do It! group led by Ms. Hinde, Ms. Aggen, Mrs. Eubanks, and Mrs. Smolik got underway with some intense building. This club was very popular! We understand some families were not able to sign their students up due to the high demand. Look for future dates when we may run this one again!


Upcoming January events will be:

  • Zoo to You-The Henry Doorly Zoo will be at Buffett. Students will learn from experts about animals/habitats around the world.
  • Coding with Spheros and Ozobots-Students will learn basic robotics coding.
