Reserved Parking for Teachers and Staff

Parents, this is a friendly reminder. Please avoid parking in the reserved parking spots. Teachers have voiced that seeing reserved parking taken by unknown vehicle adds unnecessary stress in the morning. Please help our teachers by not parking in reserved parking. Thank you!

Reading to Therapy Dogs

We have started a new reading program for our first graders. Every Monday, Suzanne and her professionally trained therapy puppies will come visit our first graders to promote literacy and encourage students to read. The students get to spend 10-15 minutes reading to the dog.
