A Note from the Principal...

Our first nine weeks of school is complete! I hope that everyone enjoys their week off next week. Report cards will be sent home the Friday that we return to school. We will see you on Monday, October 19th!

Important Information

Red Ribbon Week/Book Character Day

We will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week the week of October 23-30. Each year we end Red Ribbon Week and our Book Fair by having, "Dress up as your Favorite Book Character Day." Students can dress up as their favorite character from a book. Students should come to school dressed in their costume. Please do not dress up as any scary book characters, and we do not allow masks.

Annual Chili Supper

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will not be able to host our annual chili supper. We will reassess the situation second semester and possibly plan a spring event. Thank you for your understanding.

Fire Prevention

We would like to thank Eric Thomas for visiting the elementary this past week to teach our students about fire safety.
