Give a big thanks, card or treat to our specials teachers (art, PE, music, media), teachers aides, reading specialists, special education/resource, counselor, administrators, librarian, speech, language, parent specialist…if someone has made a difference for you and your child, be sure to let them know!

Your Opinion Counts!

Join Us Thursday Night (May 4th) to review our Title I Compact. As a community school we know that parents, teachers and students are all partners in the educational process. This is an opportunity to share thoughts about your role as a parent in our community school. Meeting starts at 5:30 in the Cafeteria. Childcare will be provided. There will be hot dogs, bring a side to share!

He’s a Captain, Are you?

If you’ve ever had an urge to wear a captain’s suit, now is your chance!

If we’re going to have a Carnival next year we need to get our Carnival Captain spots filled! So please consider joining the awesome Carnival crew as a Team Captain! The best part of being a captain (besides the hat) is knowing you are making our school carnival possible and making a difference in our community. We’ve got an awesome crew of worker bees that will work on your team and many of the jobs have plans that you just need to follow. We need Captains for the following teams:

  • Publicity/Marketing
  • Setup/Cleanup
  • Volunteers
  • Supplies
  • Booths
  • Sponsorship/Donations

For more information, please contact:
(Captain suits not included)
