 Friendly Reminder: Safety of children at school is always 1st!

  • Do Not allow your children to walk in the street to enter your vehicle.
  • Pull safely to a curb.
  • Always Stop Fully at stop signs.
  • Wait until families have safely crossed and gotten out of the crosswalk before pulling into the street.
  • Remember the Staff Parking Lot is still a Parking Lot. Please keep the little ones on the sidewalks and do not cut through the staff parking lot. 

Wednesday & Friday Mornings: Our wonderful PE teacher will be starting a new circuit training program for our kids. She is asking for volunteers to help out until the children start getting the hang of it. The shifts are for 30 minutes blocks. The sign-up is listed by grade so if you want to help with your children's grade you can. She will also be starting something special for our kids also. New information will be coming soon for the Kinders.
