Wednesday Folder – Feb 21, 2018


What an awesome community we have!! Through the widespread support of friends, family, and our business partners: Home Slice Pizza, Juke Automotive, Edwards Mulhausen Design, Rockford Business Interiors, and PSW we’ve raised $23,172!

You may have noticed the mason jar contest we had going, tallying how many donations came in from each grade level, and the winner is…….FIRST GRADE!

A special grade wide treat will be distributed this Friday. Key chains will also be distributed to each child who had a donation made in their name.

There is still time to donate if you feel moved to do so–we still need another $6,828 to meet our $30,000 goal. You can drop a check in the PTA mailbox, located in the administration office, or go to

Your generosity and involvement are inspiring not only to our children but to the city at large. Your engagement is what makes this school so special. Again, THANK YOU.

Young Writer’s Workshop

Tomorrow is our 22nd annual Young Writer’s Workshop (YWW)! Be sure you ask your child how his/her day went. You’re bound to be delighted! If you are interested in learning more about the amazing presenters at this year’s workshop see the list here…
