CRAZY HAIR DAY… TOMORROW!
Please help your child join our school Spirit Day tomorrow and celebrate his or her hair.
Seventh Grade Parent High School Information Night – Next Tuesday, May 3 @6:00pm
All parents of 7th graders are invited (and strongly encouraged) to meet with Mr. Young to hear about the admissions process for High School entrance. Now is a great time to begin organizing your calendar with dates and details so there will be less stress in the Fall! Students will have a lot of support next year so this meeting is for parents only.

The K/1, 2/3, and 4/5 classes each made one large, collaborative piece that will be sold during the live auction. The 6, 7, and 8 classes worked independently to create their own pieces of art.

The afternoons offer a variety of free play and structured activities. If you are interested, applications are available in the office or you can download one from our website.
Some space is still available for students who are entering 1st grade through 6th grade.
