Welcome to Week 29!

We hope everyone is enjoying the Spring Break!

Just a reminder that Monday, March 18 is a Teacher Work Day and there is no school for students. Students return on Tuesday, March 19.

Report Cards will be sent home on Monday, March 25. Awards for students in grades 3-5 will also take place on March 25.

Last 9 Weeks PBIS Days

We are so appreciative of teachers organizing fun Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) days for students! As a reminder - PBIS days are to support positive behaviors. This is a reward for students who have been great role models for others, and have exhibited exemplary behaviors. Students are ineligible to attend if they receive a discipline referral or have a less than 70% average on their Class DOJO. These students are always part of academic events and any class rewards if applicable, but cannot participate in the grade level PBIS days. Let’s make it our goal to have a 100% attendance in our last 9 weeks’ PBIS!!!

Spring Pictures

Our individual Spring Pictures are scheduled for Wednesday, March 20.

Talent Show Tryouts

Our Spring Talent Show tryouts are on Wednesday, March 20. We hope to have many students participate this year!

SAC and PTO Meetings

Our SAC and PTO meetings are scheduled for Thursday, March 21.

Regular school business will be discussed at the SAC meeting, to include a proposal for the classroom library book purchases.

Our PTO will discuss end of the year fundraisers, events, and the upcoming Teachers and Staff appreciation week.


Thank you to everyone who placed an order for an individualized yearbook ad this year! There is still time to order the yearbooks. All sales are online and they are due by March 29.
