Highlights For This Year
We are very excited about our overnight field trip to Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center from February 20th to February 22nd. Students will spend three days learning about nature, developing teamwork skills, and participating in challenging outdoor adventure activities. We also have several other exciting field trips in the works--stay tuned!
School starts at 8:30 everyday, it’s so important to have your child here on time. It’s also important to make sure they are here everyday. We appreciate the time and effort you put into making sure your child gets here each day.
Homework is assigned every night except Fridays. All students are expected to complete a worksheet and read 30 minutes each night to complete their daily reading log. Please check your child’s backpack each night.
We are a uniform school. Please help make sure your child comes in uniform each day. Students may wear a navy blue sweatshirt with no hood as part of their uniform.
We are committed to a strong partnership between school and home. We invite you to visit, call or email whenever you can. We know a strong partnership starts will good communication. We are here for you and can’t wait to help your children become independent lifelong learners.
