Pennies For Patients

Teacher donates hair to "Locks of Love" and students donate to "Pennies for Patients"

The faculty, staff and student body participated in Pennies for Patients which supports the leukemia and lymphoma society.  Our TOTY volunteered to have her hair cut at school in an assembly, live in front of the students, once we reached our goal of over $800. She is donating her hair to Locks of Love. This spontaneous event occurred Friday morning in the school's cafeteria with our student body. It was amazing...we hope you enjoy!

Safety Patrols Assist With Carpool

Dear Parents,
The year is off to a great start but we do need your help. We are excited that beginning Monday, October 6, we had safety patrols in the morning and afternoon to assist with carpool. In the morning, we only have one lane open. Safety patrol students will assist your student out of the car. If you use our car pool lane, you may not exit your vehicle. You will then exit when your child has exited the car and the car in front of you has moved. You may not leave the lane to pass around another car. In the afternoon, please remember to pull all the way up so that we may load all vehicles more quickly. Once all cars in the loading section have been loaded, we will release so that the next set of cars may move up to the loading zone. Also, in the afternoon, if you are a walk-up, meaning that you park to come and pickup your child, they now exit at the bus loading zone before daycare van riders. Parents, please be sure that you have the proper method of pick-up recorded with your teacher. If there is a change, you must send in a note in writing.  Thank you for your help!
Mrs. Grove, Principal

Program, we are able to provide free books to your child to encourage their love of learning and love of reading while away from school this summer.By reading at home with your child, you will enhance your child's comprehension, fluency, vocabulary and mastery in reading and other subjects.

Parents who received an invitation to one of our Honor's Day programs on May 14 and May 15 may pick up their child's reading pack before or after the program.  The library media center will have a table set up in the school's lobby for your convenience.

Students whose parents will not be attending an Honor's Day program will receive their reading packs from their teacher on May 18.
