Dismissal Info.

REMINDER: Please call the office if you need to make a change for your child's Dismissal Transportation. For example: You will be picking your child up rather than riding the bus home. Please DO NOT message your child's teacher on Class Dojo. We want to make sure the message gets to your child and your child's teacher. Please call in at 219-956-3221. Please call in before 1:00 pm. Thank you!

A reminder that we dismiss at 3:25 PM for Parent Pick-Up. Due to safety concerns with traffic backing up to the highway, we begin releasing students 3-5 minutes before our scheduled dismissal of 3:25 PM for Parent Pick-Up Students. We are asking for your assistance with arriving to pick-up your child closer to 3:25 PM. This will prevent the line from backing up into the highway. Your assistance with this request is very much appreciated!

Still Time to Pre-Register for Kindergarten

If you or someone you know has an incoming Kindergartener, please stop by our School Office soon to pre-register. You can come in to do so anytime between 9:00 am-2:00 pm.

School-Issued Chromebooks

On May 19th through the end of the school year, your child will not be bringing home their school-issued chromebook. Mrs. Kamminga will begin her work with getting all of them updated, cleaned, and ready for next school year!

WES Relay Recess | Friday, May 20th

This year, we are bringing back American Cancer Society's Relay Recess Event. This is a great event for students to walk to honor and celebrate those who have beat their battle against cancer or those loved ones who we have lost. Students will also do activities and lessons about staying active and healthy!

More information about this event will be coming home later this month!
