5th Grade Recognition Ceremony

Please join us on Tuesday, May 16 to celebrate our 5th grade students.  The celebration will begin at 7:00 PM. There will be awards and a reception immediately following. All family and friends are invited!


Summer Mobile Bus Project

This summer you may see a white bus with purple and gold in your neighborhood.  This bus will be offering free food and reading opportunities to children ages 1-18.  Additional information regarding the bus will be sent home with students in the near future. 


Pick Up and Drop Off of Students

You may have noticed that our school buses have moved to 5th street when picking up students after school.  This has allowed our traffic on 4th street to move at a better pace.  We need your help with another matter.  Your child’s safety is very important.  Please allow them to cross the street at designated crosswalks.  Crossing in the middle of the street is dangerous for your child and can teach them bad habits when they are crossing without an adult.   We all want our students to be safe and this is a matter where we can all make a difference.  Thank you in advance for crossing at these designated crosswalks.
