Change to 5th Grade Testing Time

Parents, We Need Your Help
We have had an increasing number of students dropped off early lately.  Please understand that the only students who should be coming in early are those who are registered in the before care program.  Students may enter the building at 9:00 and are late if they are not in their seat in the classroom by 9:15.  Thanks!

Family File Update
Number of children whose parents haven't updated: 6.  Almost there!!  Remember that your child will not be able to attend a field trip until the information is updated.  The file must be updated by the payment due date on the permission slip.  Report cards will also be withheld.
