August is officially here and with that comes "back to school" time! We will begin classes on Wednesday, August 21 for grades 1-5. KinderStart students will begin on Friday, August 23; and Kindergarten will begin on Monday, August 26. All kindergarten students will be personally contacted by your child's teacher to attend an orientation meeting (Wednesday-Friday, August 21-23). If you do not hear from your child's kindergarten teacher by Friday, August 16; please call the school office. We may have a bad telephone number for you. Class lists will be posted for grades 1-5 by Friday, August 16 on our library windows.
Open House for the elementary will be on Monday, August 19 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Feel free to bring your school supplies with you during our Open House. We are excited to see you! Enjoy the remaining days of your summer vacation!
