Please join us on Thursday, September 26th for Curriculum Night. The PTA will hold a general meeting from 6:00-6:30 in the cafeteria. Please be sure to join us as we will be voting on the PTA budget. The first parent session will begin at 6:30 and end at 6:55. The second parent session will begin at 7:00 and eat at 7:25. 


Independence Day is September 23rd


As students get adjusted to the school year we have appreciated parents supporting them by getting them to class, having breakfast with them, and stopping to say hello to the teachers. As of Monday, September 23rd we will not be allowing parents to walk students to class. This really teaches students to be independent and allows teachers to get their day started. It also helps us with the overall safety of the school. If you do need to see a teacher please send them an email or call and ask Mrs. Morin to get them a message. 


Health Assessments & Immunization Records


Kindergarten families and families new to North Carolina, please make sure that you have given us the NC Health Assessment from and completed Immunization Records before the 30th day of school.  Mrs. Forman, our school's data manager, has sent reminders to all families missing any forms. The final due date for all records in October 1st.  After that date, students missing any records are required to be excluded from school by North Carolina law.  Thank you for helping us complete this important task and keep our students healthy. 


Purple Cards


Please be sure to return your Purple locator card to your child’s teachers ASAP. All information should be current as this is the information we use to contact parents/guardians when needed. Also, be sure to make updates as changes occur.


Coffee and Grounds


Please mark your calendars for Saturday, October 5th from 8:30-12:00 to help clean up the school grounds. Mulch has been ordered and member of the First Baptist Church will be here to help! We will be working on the front of the school. We will have coffee available as you work.
