Spring Picture Packages

You should have received your student’s spring picture packages. Package payments are due by May 25. If you do not want to purchase the pictures, you must return the pictures by May 25. Any unreturned, unpaid pictures will become a fine that must be paid before report cards will be given to students.  

Field Day

Students in grades Pre-K – 2 will participate in activities from 8:15 – 10:45. Students in grade 3 – 5 will participate from 11:45 – 2:30. All students will be given a freeze pop during the event. If your child cannot have a freeze pop, please let his/her teacher know. Students should bring hats and sunglasses. They must come with sunscreen as staff members cannot put sunscreen on students during the school day. All parents are invited to attend Field Day activities this Thursday, May 24. We will have Field Day on this date rain or shine. There is an indoor plan in the event of rain

Pre-Kindergarten and kindergarten registration will begin on April 10 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the data center at Mount Energy. To register your child, bring proof of residence, proof of income (Pre-K only), and the child’s birth certificate and immunization record.

Proctors Needed

If you are available to proctor for the EOG's, please contact the school. Thanks!

Lunch Visitation Reminder

All parents, grandparents, and family members are welcome to visit with students during lunch. When all students return to their classrooms, parents should report to the office to checkout. Parents should not walk students to class as this has caused a disruption to the school day. Students have not been able to return to instruction in a timely manner due to parents/families walking students back to class. If you would like to come observe or volunteer in the classroom, we would love to have you do so. However, you will need to set these times with the your child’s teacher in advance. We are always looking for volunteers to read to students, talk to students in the cafeteria to let them know the community cares about them, and mentor students. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, contact Colleen Haas ( Thank you for your support!

Scholastic Reading Tip for Parents: What’s “Just Right”? 

Children feel confident and competent when they read books that are “just right.” But how do you find a “just right” book? Have your child read the back and front cover, and the first page of the book. If there are more than five words that he cannot pronounce or understand in context, the book may be too challenging. Be supportive of finding a more perfect fit. Choosing the right book will help your little reader feel successful.

School Time Clarification
The instructional day is now 7:25am to 2:45pm. Therefore, all students who arrive after 7:25am will be considered tardy. At that time, parents will need to park in designated parking spaces, come inside with their children, and sign the children in on the computer. Also, thank you for your patience as we continue to make adjustments to make our dismissal process as efficient as possible. We appreciate your support!
