One Book One School - December
Mouse has never had a friend quite like Pig. Pig is so incredibly kind, fabulously fun, but he also has a big secret-he's a tremendous worrier! When Pig gets the brilliant idea to throw a party for Mouse and their friends, he can't help but think of everything that could possibly go wrong.
Elementary Math Curriculum Review
We extend an invite for you to come and join us! We need parents to help be on our committee. If you are interested, please let me know!
3rd - 5th Christmas Program
We are so excited to be back to in-person performances. Please note that only 3rd, 4th & 5th graders will be performing at the Christmas Concert. This decision was made so that the Minico Auditorium can comfortably seat all that wish to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!

First Annual Teacher Giving Tree
The teachers at our school are extraordinary. We see them go above and beyond, day in and day out. Did you know that a Department of Education study found that 94% of teachers use their own money to purchase supplies for their classrooms?
This holiday season, we as a parent organization are asking for your help to give back to our amazing teachers. If you are able, please consider picking an item or two off of our teacher's virtual wish list and then return the unwrapped item to Mrs. Kontos in the office. Once the item is brought to school, your student will be able to write his/her name on an ornament and place it on the Christmas tree in the foyer. Gifts will then be wrapped and delivered anonymously to the teachers before the Christmas break.
We hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday season with your loved ones.
Love, the CPT (Caring Parents and Teachers Organization)
PLEASE RETURN ALL GIFTS TO THE OFFICE BY TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13TH

We try our very best to communicate with you through all different formats in hopes one works for you! If you aren't following along- please do! We can't wait to show you everything that goes on behind the school doors.
We post lots of pictures throughout the month to show you what is going on at school. If you would not like to have your child in a picture/video that could potentially be posted to our social media websites - please let the office know. If we don't hear from you, we will assume you agree.
