Principal’s Message

As we enter break, please use this time to refocus on and develop renewed goals, while recognizing all we have to be grateful for. The first half of the second quarter just passed, so when students return in the New Year, the end of the second quarter will be upon us. We hope you use this holiday recess to engage with loved ones in a variety of ways!

Student Focus

Dear Families,

This week we reviewed various character strengths. We reminded our students that they are uniquely made with many character strengths, which grow in direct proportion to how they use these strengths to enrich the lives of others.

Thank you for encouraging each other, and please continue this life-long work into 2024 and beyond.

Playground Access While School Programs Are In Session

For the safety of our students, the School Playground is closed to the public during school hours 7:30AM-5:00PM Monday through Friday when school is in session. Visitor passes are available at the Front Desk upon administrative approval.


Winter Recess Preparedness

Now that our weather is colder, a reminder to K-5 parents and students to make sure they are prepared for outdoor recess time. (Snow boots, snow pants, hats, gloves/mittens and warm coats.) Please make sure your K-5 child has warm weather attire each day to go outside so they can participate in recess.
