Principal's Corner

Hello Parents,

If you are a third or fourth grade parent, I hope your child talked with you about the exciting science activities that took place last week in our classrooms including the 3rd grade science show and the several learning opportunities last week in 4th grade. ALL of our teachers are skilled at creating engaging opportunities for our children.  

We have also conducted all of our safety drills for the months of August, September, and October.  This includes fire, lockdown, and weather drill.  Our teachers and students knew exactly how to respond and we were able to be in our safe locations well before the suggested time limit.

November 8th - Veteran’s Day Program - 9am
