The line of cars that was dropping off students after 9:15 was very long this past week.  Please make every effort to arrive by 9:10 so your child has time to walk to class to be ready to learn with their class at 9:15 when learning starts.  Thank you. 

Lost and Found

With the cooler temperatures, our Lost and Found has grown! There are many jackets, sweatshirts, hats, and water bottles without an owner.  If your child is missing anything, please have them check the lost and found.  We have organized all items and have them hanging and/or displayed in the front hallway.  All items still left at the end of February will be donated.
