"Heroes are those who can somehow resist the power of the situation and act out of noble motives, or behave in ways that do not demean others when they easily can."
Fabulous Field Day
Check out this great video from our Annual Field Day event last year! As you can see, fun times were had by all!
Monday Morning Meeting Expectations
Every Monday, we will start the week off with an all-school meeting on the playground. Students should enter the school building through the front door, put their backpacks on their hooks, and head immediately out to the playground. Students are not allowed to enter the classrooms at this time. Once on the playground the students can walk in laps or line up in their designated class spots. Students are NOT allowed to use playground equipment and/or play on the play structure during this time. Each Monday, we will say the Pledge of Allegiance, recognize birthdays for the week, and make any special announcements. Parents and families are welcome to stay for the meeting. At the end of the meeting, students will be dismissed to their classrooms. If parents/guardians wish to volunteer in the classrooms, they need to walk around the building to the front entrance and sign in at the front desk.
Arrival through Drop-Off Line:
New Attendance Policy
