    Dear Families,

    The summer has flown by and it's hard to believe we will soon be starting school again. I hope you've had a wonderful, relaxing summer with many fond memories to look back on.

    We will be sending out our newsletter shortly with your child's classroom assignment and other important information. School supplies lists are also on this website for our 5th - 8th graders. Take advantage of the school supplies sales while you can. For Kindergarten - 4th grade, we will continue to purchase supplies and appreciate your donation of $35 or whatever is comfortable for your family to donate to the classroom.

    Project Community Care Day is scheduled for Saturday, September 10th, from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. This date may change so keep your eyes out for an email or on this website if that changes. Snacks and drink will be provided for those of you who would like to volunteer your time to beautify the school grounds. Bring your own tools or we have a few you can use. Thank you!

    We're looking forward to seeing you soon!

    Regards,

    Mr. Newsome

Since Wednesday, our dedicated custodians and maintenance staff have been working very long hours to clear pathways, manage building power, plumbing and heat to ensure all of our utilities are operational given the freezing conditions that can impact pipes and electricity.
