There are only two days of school this week due to the Thanksgiving Recess. Tuesday will be a full day with our normal dismissal time. I hope you enjoy time with family and friends over the holiday!
Lunch Money Overdue Notices
Last week our district sent out lunch money overdue notices. They will be doing that periodically throughout the year. It’s an automatic system, and even if you are behind on paying for lunch by just a little bit, it will notify you. If you need any help putting funds in your child’s lunch account, please contact the front office. We can also help families that need to apply for free and reduced lunch.
Kindness Is Cool
Here are some examples of kindness happening at our school these past couple of months. We have the best students!
