Fun and Field Day

Our annual Fun and Field Day will be held on Wednesday, June 1 from 8:00-10:30am.  We will need volunteers.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact your child’s teacher to let him/her know.


Yearbooks will be for sale for $25 each while supplies last.  Please look for our PTA Board Members in front of the office before and after school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. 

Parent Liaison

After three years as Parent Liaison, I have decided to turn over the job to very capable hands.  Congratulations to our parent and librarian, Michelle Edwards.  She will take over the Parent Liaison position beginning in August. 

Summer Reading

Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge
Our wonderful librarian, Michelle Edwards, has found the time to meet with all students and teachers to discuss the summer reading program.  She gave the students instructions for online and paper logging of reading minutes for the summer.  We are attempting to beat the world record for most minutes read over the summer.  We are one school participating with more than 6,000 schools around the world.  Our hope would be to win Best in State and get our school name published in the 2017 Scholastic World Records Book.  If you have any questions, they can contact Michelle at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

5th Grade Promotion

Our 5th graders are ready to celebrate their successes.  On Thursday, June 2 at 9:00am, our 5th graders will be promoted to middle school.  At the conclusion of the promotion, 5th graders will be dismissed from school.


If you are a current volunteer, we need you to fill out a returning form for next year.  I have given them to teachers to be passed out on Tuesday.  Please try to get them back to the classroom teacher or office by Thursday.  You may also click Returning Volunteer - English, Spanish, Vietnamese
If you have never volunteered but would like to next year, please consider filling out the attached form.  Bring it to the office for Principal approval and then you can make an appointment for a TB test and fingerprinting.  You may also click New Volunteer - English, Spanish, Vietnamese
Thank you to all who have helped us this year.  We are forever grateful!
