What's Happening

 Spring Newsletter

We are deep into March and there is a lot going on in the next few months at the elementary school. To start, we would like to show our great appreciation for our PTC. They do so much for our students and staff. The organization fundraises, volunteers for and helps organize special events, provides meals for our staff during parent/teacher conferences and so much more.  Dedicated staff, wonderful students and a supportive community are the primary factors that make our school special.

We have three weeks of state testing in the month of April. Please be sure students are here for those sessions. If you can, schedule doctors’ appointments and other needs around the times listed below. We would greatly appreciate it. Please be sure your child eats a good breakfast to get their brain fed and ready to do their best.

Summer school is just around the corner. Teacher recommendation is what determines if your child is recommended for summer school.Please be watching for the forms in April for summer school.

2018-2019 District Calendar

Please help us. We are having some problems with students being dropped off in the parking lot rather than using the drop off lanes. We know it can take more time to go through the lane, but numerous students have almost been hit in the parking lot. Please always use the lane unless you need to park and enter one of the buildings. Another option is to drop off on the west side of the playground. Thank you for your cooperation.

It took a bit longer for the weather to get cold, but it has now arrived. Kids need jackets, gloves and something to cover their heads during inclement weather. We continue to go outside for recess if the weather is above 20 degrees and we are seeing a great deal of kids without coats or warm clothes.

The lost and found is piling up (maybe a big reason we are seeing so many kids without coats). Parents and students are welcome to check it at any time. We make a couple of trips to Goodwill each year and probably keep them in business.
