Puberty Talk - March 18th

Each year, fifth and sixth grade schedule a talk with the students about adolescence and general changes to expect. This year's Puberty Talk will be held on Tuesday, March 18th. A permission/email notification from our school nurses will be sent home this week. Please read their message and if you do not want your child to attend, you may reply to them indicating that you wish for your child to be excused from this talk. If you do not respond to their email, they will assume that your child has permission to attend. Please feel free to contact me or the school nurses if you have any questions.

Hoop-A-Thon Fundraiser!

From now until March 7th, our entire school will be working together to raise money for our Computer Lab! Hoop-A-Thon details are located here on the school website. We will have a super fun Spirit Week coming up soon, so stay tuned for details. The final Hoop Day will be on March 7th, where all of the students in the school shoot hoops to raise funds for our school! Thank you for supporting our community!
