Dismissal will be at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 

Students may bring in a small, healthy snack and drink each day.

All summer assignments must be brought in on the first day of school.

As noted on the supply list, loose leaf paper, tissues, paper towels, disinfectant wipes, and sanitizer should be brought in during the first full week of school.  These items may be brought in a few at a time, so the student is not carrying so many items at once.  

Thursday, September 13, 2018-Meet the Teacher Night-begins at 6:30 pm.

I look forward to meeting you all as we begin a wonderful school year together!
