If you would like to provide a staff shoutout, please click here or go to the school website.


Reading Every Night for March Madness!


The most important thing you can do at home is NOT homework the data shows. Instead the most important predictor is if a student reads every day for at least 20 minutes outside of the school day. To encourage this,  your child has a March Madness Reading Challenge. This can be signed if a child reads independently, if you read with or to your child, or if they listen to a book! Don’t forget there are lots of ways to access free books. Through our school library, the new public library in Cary, or our Little Free Library out front.  If you need a new paper please email your classroom teacher or ask for one in the front office.

Kindergarten Registration


It is hard to believe but we are already thinking about next year. It is time to register your Kindergartner for school. If they are turning 5 on or before August 31st please go ahead and get them registered. This helps us prepare for next year. We have information on our website or you can use this link
