Picture Day

We had a great picture day last Thursday. It was great to see the children gather for their class photos in the main lobby. Their smiles brought smiles to everyone who was within eyesight. Each child looked dashing in their picture day outfits. We can’t wait to see the pictures when they come back!

PTO Meeting Tonight

Join the PTO in the computer lab tonight at 6:30 to get help signing up for Scrip Center. This easy fundraiser is a great way to help the PTO earn money while just purchasing the tings that you would normally purchase.

Following this help session, our regular PTO meeting will be held in the library at 7:00 PM.

See you there!

Construction Updates

  • Parent Drop-Off/Pick-up: This will soon change to students entering and exiting through the new part of the building. Please watch for the adults supervising this area to help your child transition to this new entrance.
  • Classrooms: With the completion of the new section this week, we expect to be moving classrooms into that area so that we can begin renovation in other classrooms. This is exciting for the students and teachers.
  • Attire: We continue to encourage our students to wear sneakers for comfort and safety.
