May 1, 2019 -Principal's Monthly Message

May is here and the weather already feels like summer! We are in the season of staying focused on academics, safety and expectations! Thank you for your partnership as we continue to press forward to the end of the year! 

Fifth Grade Promotion day | We will celebrate our fifth graders on the last day of school, June 11th. Our fifth graders will have their promotion ceremony at 10:00 AM on this last day followed by a fifth grade picnic. We will need your help with parking/ traffic as we invite fifth grade parents to our campus. Thank you for the least amount of traffic this day so we can focus on the promotion ceremony and keeping the last day of school as low key as possible. 

EOG Snack Support | Check out our website and Classdojo for specifics on donations requested for our EOG test takers in June. Our student council would love to collect snacks to help support all of our successful students. Snack packs of animal crackers, Goldfish and Pretzels are requested along with mini water bottles. Thank you for any support with this endeavor! 

Safety and Procedure Reminders |

  • Please make sure carpool students are picked up no later than 4:10 PM
  • Please do not drop students off in the bus loop in the mornings.  If they arrive late, after 9:15 AM, they need to be signed in at the front office by an adult.
  • Please do not drop students off in carpool if the Safety Patrol students and staff have already come inside.  You will need to pull and around, park and come sign them in at the office.

Field Day | We are excited to have our annual Field Day on Friday, May 10th (Rain Date May 17th). Our K-2 students will participate in the AM and our 3-5th grade students will participate in the afternoon. Please sign up to be a parent volunteer at this website We need you!
