  • 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 are now available on Skyward! 
  • Our Back-to-School Night will be held on Monday, Aug. 21st 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 1st-6th grades is Tuesday, Aug. 22nd. 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. Here is a link to the updated district school calendar.
