Principal's Notes and Highlights

Happy Friday!

We made the best of a very long week for those taking ISTEP. Third grade students will take IREAD next Monday and Tuesday. Everyone got in on the fun and spirits were high all week. Thank you for having your children ready to go each and every day!

I have included several photos from our theme days. Each 3rd-6th grade team earned their "bid" to the CSA Lincoln Dodgeball tournament next week so we will crown a champion before Spring Break. Each class came up with their own team name. Entries to the tournament include...

  • Blue Snakes
  • The Goats
  • The Fighting Orange Juice
  • The Orange Huskies!
  • The Warrior Turtles
  • Alpha Dogs
  • Awesome Waffle Squad!
  • The Defenders

Be sure to turn in the permission slip for the Paw Party that will be held next Wednesday! This is a great way for your child to have fun and attend the annual Staff vs. Student Basketball Game that will start at 5:00 p.m. We will play the game at Central Middle School. Admission to the Paw Pack is $5 per student. Admission to the game is free!

One week to go!

Have a great weekend,

  • Helping the Homeless- Sydney and Sophie (5th Grade) approached me a couple weeks ago with an interest in helping those who are homeless. They have been working extremely hard on their own time and will be working with local businesses on their own. Here is an outline of what they are sharing with the community. We are very proud of their initiative and desire to go above and beyond!

The tabs collected will be turned into money that supports the Ronald McDonald House! See flyer (below) for more information.
