Students and Parents,
We are so excited to welcome each of you back to a new and exciting school year! I want to draw your attention to some important information as our 1st-6th grade students start school on Thursday, Aug 18, 2022. Kindergarten begins Aug 26th and Preschool begins Aug 24th.

  • Please complete your child’s yearly registration before school starts. This ensures that your child will have access to technology at school and that we have accurate information for your child.
  • Teacher assignments will be available on Skyward on Friday, Aug 12th . You will need to complete online registration before that time!
  • Our Back-to-School Night will be held in person on Wednesday, Aug 17th between 5:30-7:00pm. We will again be serving hotdogs and chips after you visit your teachers and the PTA! We would like to thank PTA for sponsoring this fun event!
  • The first day of school for grades 1-6 is Thursday, Aug 18th . The students should line up outside at 8:53am when they hear music playing outside. Grade level numbers are painted on the playground and there will be signs indicating teacher lines. The first bell rings at 8:55am and teachers will bring students into the building at that time.
