Announcements:

 

  • Yearbook: Thank you to Mrs. Myers and her team for a job well done! Despite this unique year, they all did a great job putting our yearbook together. 

 

  • All Students Will Receive Free School Meals For the 2021-22 School Year: Breakfast and lunch will be available at no cost to students for the 2021-22 school year. While the district may be able to offer free meals to all students, it is very important for eligible parents to complete a meal benefits application because this data enables schools to obtain funding to provide other important educational resources to benefit students. Other benefits that are issued directly to families that have applied and are eligible for meal benefits may also be available (such as the P-EBT cash benefit). Meal benefits applications for the 2021-22 school year will be available online at myschoolapps.com starting July 1, 2021. Paper applications will also be available at all schools.

Take advantage of an amnesty period with library books! She can also accept books that belong to your old elementary school, too.
