As we prepare for the upcoming holiday, I want to extend sincere gratitude to all of our families for your patience, support and continuous encouragement. We have such a wonderful learning community and truly appreciate all of our students and families.  I hope each of you has a beautiful holiday weekend with family and friends.


Staff Recognition:

With all has been going on, we are making a special effort this year to express appreciation for our teachers and staff as we put a wrap on 2021.

We are putting on a BIG surprise holiday week and we have a way we would love for parents to get involved:

During the week of December 6, our school administration is doing a Holiday Week game show with prizes and treats each day (it’s a surprise, so don’t let it slip!).  We have creative ideas and special privileges for many of the prizes, but we also need gift cards.  If you would like to donate one or two, in any amount, please drop them off at the office by December 1st or email any e-gift cards to  (These are cards we will use as prizes for the game, so please don’t let this take away from anything you might normally do for your individual teachers). Thank you, everyone, for helping us make this a special week!


A huge shout out to our students. Our student usage and # of lessons completed has continued to increase each month.  Third grade has 100% of students completing lessons and grades 1,2 and 5 are close behind with 99% of students using the program.  Please keep encouraging your children to complete 5-7 lessons each week.
