  • Missing or Damaged Library Books

    Every summer many students go off on vacation before turning in all of their library books. We encourage students and their families to bring in missing library books over the summer as soon as the items are found to prevent possible loss or damage and to allow the media center to complete the end-of-the-year inventory.

  • Awards & EOG Information

    Please follow theses procedures to help with parking and traffic in the front of our building run smoother. If you are picking your child up in carpool, please do not line up before 3:15pm. This will allow our parents who are coming to the 2pm performance and grade level awards to leave and not be blocked in by cars lining up for carpool. Also, if you are coming to a performance and grade level award presentation, please do not park in the back bus parking lot; you will need to park at the front of the school and come in to get a visitor pass. And finally, I wanted to let all of the parents of our 3rd through 5th grade students. You will receive information about EOG scores in writing no later than this Wednesday, May 22nd.
