Please note: All 4th and 5th graders must attend the Spring Concert. The students have been working so hard to prepare for this performance, and we need all of their wonderful voices in our ensemble!  Please contact us if you have any questions.

If you are cleaning out the garage and have a gently used basketball-football-kickball or soccer ball that you don’t use anymore, you can bring it to the pancake breakfast to donate to the recess bins outside. Kids enjoy playing with jump ropes and drawing with chalk too!
