PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays. Please send your child to school on those days in their PE Uniform with sneakers. No jewelry except small post- style earrings on PE days!

Students are required to read and take a minimum of 3 accelerated reader tests per quarter within his/ her reading level, striving for 80% accuracy. Your student’s reading level is listed at the back of their planner. Please encourage your child to read 25 minutes daily!

All students not picked up by 3:30 will be sent to after school care. Please send a note or email if you’d like your child to attend.
