As a reminder, you are welcome at any point in the year to fill out a free and reduced lunch application. We want to make sure to support families with lunches as well as helping the school with categorical funding. It’s a win-win. Please come to the front office for an application.
Wednesday, March 1st is the beginning of registration and renewal for zone transfers. Please make sure to take care of this important paperwork for the 2017-2018 school year.

Our Student Council is kicking off a, “Read Across America Spirit Week,” next week, 2/27-3/3/17. Each day is associated with a Dr. Seuss book in celebration of his birthday on March 2. We will have Community Readers coming to the school on Thursday to read to children in the classrooms. Additionally we have two contests going on, a Classroom Door Decorating contest as well as a Book Cover contest. Here is the schedule of events. read-across-america-spirit-week-activities_2017
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at, 479-3662.
Along with the exciting week of Read Across America spirit activities planned for next week, we will also have Spring pictures taken on Wednesday, March 1. This is the day that students have the opportunity to dress up like their future career coinciding with Dr. Seuss book, “Oh the Place You’ll Go.” We thought what a fun picture to have years from now to look back upon with them dressed as their future career! Of course if you would prefer them in “regular” clothes, you are more than welcome to dress them however you would like.
Also remember that you do not send in money for Spring pictures. Send in the form showing the selection of the pose you would like. After picture day, you will receive a portrait package to review and purchase.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office staff.
Minimum days for parent conferences starts on Thursday March 8 next week. Please make arrangements for pick up.
