Dear Families,

Our Meet the Teacher/Open House will be on three nights from 5pm to 6:30pm, starting in the cafeteria and then progressing to classrooms. At these events you will learn about our school program, Title 1 funding, and each teacher’s class program. Kindergarten is Monday, August 1st, Grades 1-5 are Tuesday August 2nd, and Grades 6-8 are Wednesday August 3rd .   


While school supply donations are not mandatory, our teachers greatly appreciate any help you can provide.  Attached is a supply/donation list that can greatly benefit our school.
