  • Instruction begins at 7:45 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.
  • Please do not pass in the car rider line. This is not safe for our students or parents. Please make sure your child exits out of the passenger side so that they do not have to cross in front of cars.
  • If you have any transportation changes, please make sure that you let Ms. Donna know by 2:30. This helps ensure that she has enough time to alert teachers of the change.
  • Parents will be able to come eat lunch with their child at our outdoor picnic area.
  • Your child may bring a water bottle to school and refill it our touch less water fountains.

A Peek at Last Week

Counselor Corner

This week K-2 will be visiting Mrs. Page’s class. In Kinder, we will be discussing how to be a bucket filler and reflecting on our word of the month. Be sure to ask them how they filled someone’s bucket this week.

In 1st and 2nd grade, we will be discussing how to understand emotions and feelings. Sometimes Kids don’t know how to express themselves verbally. If that is the case, we need to help them express it in other ways. For example, pointing to the feeling and coloring it.

If you have any questions or need anything, please do not hesitate to contact her. or 501-679-1029 ext 3.
