Below is a list of the open positions for the 2024-25 school year. If you are interested in any of them, or in one that isnt listed, please let us know by filling out this google form:

Family Survey Open until May 17th - Reminder

We want to make your student’s school experience as positive and beneficial as possible. In doing so, we encourage you to complete our family survey for each school where you have a student enrolled. Parents or guardians with more than one student enrolled at a school should only complete the survey for that school once. Please complete the survey by May 17: 


STEM Materials Request - Reminder

In May, students in Mrs. Self's STEM special area classes will challenge their physics minds by creating their very own marble runs. Each grade level will be able to create these catered to their physics standards and developmental levels. Ms. Self is looking for: paper towel rolls, toilet paper rolls, masking tape, paper plates with rims/edges, plastic straws, shoe boxes (grades 3-5), various sized plastic or paper cups. If you have these materials please send them in with your student and have them drop them in the "STEM Materials" box located in the lobby. Materials will be collected until 5/25.
