  • Our Veteran’s Day program is on Wednesday, November 8th at 1:30.  If you are a Veteran, you are invited to join us for the program so that we may honor you.
  • Christmas Program—We will have two presentations of the same program to accommodate our large audiences.  Please attend only one program.  If you have a K-2nd grader, please come to the 10:00 program, if you have a 3rd-5th grader, please come to the 1:00pm program.  If you have children in both grade levels, choose either program.  This is just to try to split our audience in half.  The students will be eating in their classrooms this day, so visitors will not be able to eat with their children on this day.
  • PTO is still collecting Box Tops for Education.  PTO is able to make thousands of dollars each year from these Box Tops.  Please ask your friends and relatives to collect the Box Tops for your child as well.  Thanks!

Please, don’t hesitate to call or visit the school if you have any questions or concerns. (462-4307)
