Parents/Students our first day of school will begin August 15th, and our Back to School Orientation night will be held August 13th at 6 PM. Please bring your children so they can see their new classrooms, and socialize. I ask that everyone meet in the gym for a quick meeting before you exit to go to the classrooms. Don't forget to meet with the bus drivers and Ms. Debbie and Ms. Tosh in the office.

I know summer is a busy time for families, but I am asking that you read or have your children read a book once a week. Work on math facts, or sight words--whatever area your child may need a little extra help. Thank you in advance!

Hope to see you August 13th! Enjoy your summer!   


 Our Character Trait for the month is Courageous. Parents please reinforce this word at home whenever possible.
