Volunteer Safety
Volunteers and valets, and anyone helping out with traffic and safe crossings, for your own safety, please wear safety vests!  You can bring your own or use the ones we have in the front office.  Vests and stop signs are now located under the “Student Pick Up” sign in the top right drawer of the file cabinet, clearly labeled “Valet & Crosswalk Supplies”

Yearbook News
It’s still not too late to order your yearbook! This still includes two free customizable pages for you to add your own favorite photos of your child. Purchase your yearbook at, passcode is 101282597210657.

And for those of you who have ordered, NOW is the time to design your custom pages. Upload some of the photos that you've taken at school or class events that you would like to include in your custom pages, or to share with us in the TreeRing folders labeled by event and classroom number. Then start designing your pages… your kids will love it as a keepsake of their year.
