YOU'RE INVITED!!


This Thursday, May 17th, the students would love to welcome you into our classroom to present their State Fair Project. We are opening our doors to families from 8:15am-9:45am. We hope to see all of you there! 


Please encourage your child to wrap up their State Project at home. The project will need completed by Wednesday, May 16th as we will be presenting to other students and teachers that day. The students will only need to bring their food sample in on Wednesday.

This Wednesday, May 9th all elementary students will participate in our annual Field Day! The students will spend the day enjoying face painting, jumpy castles, photo booths, popsicles, and other outdoor games. Please remember that the cafeteria will not be serving lunch this day so all students will need to bring a sack lunch. It would also be a good idea to be prepared for all weather situations (bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, jacket, etc.).
