Today we enjoyed being outside and being active during our Rock-a-thon! It was the perfect weather. Our students performed their dance for another grade and then began their laps around our fields. The students received a water bottle from Silcox Orthodontics and a popsicle. It was a lot of fun! We hope to have pictures up on our website soon.
Masks next week
The state lifted the mask mandate for schools for their last week in session. Next week is our last week, and masks will be optional at school. We will finish this week with masks as usual.

NEXT YEAR’S PTA BOARD
Two positions are open for next year’s board:
White Ribbon Week
Plan and organize parent volunteers to run activities during White-Ribbon week, which can be whenever we want it to be! White Ribbon Week is a fun-filled elementary school program that helps kids make healthy choices in media and technology. Every day, kids learn a new principle of online behavior through stories, classroom discussions and fun activities.
You will help organize the membership campaign, to get members to register for PTA at the beginning of the school year, and enter names into the PTA database for the year. It is typically done at back-to-school night and during the first few weeks of school.
