Message From the Principal

We have begun  our next sprint from Thanksgiving to Christmas and there is lots going on!

Grandparent's Day was a smashing success with a great turnout and fantastic activities for families and their students. Thanks to everyone for showing up and enjoying your morning with us!

We conducted our ALICE drill on November 24th and it went very well! We emphasize the importance of students taking the drill seriously, keeping quiet, and following directions from grown-ups. Everyone did a great job!

Before the winter break all K-5 students will be taking their STAR Math, Reading, and/or Early Literacy test. Please encourage your student to do their best on the assessment and show what they know!

With the winter months upon us it is important that students are showing up to school in appropriate clothing: hats, gloves, coats, and appropriate shoes. Students who show up without weather-appropriate gear will not be allowed outside for outdoor activities. If you are in need of winter clothes and supplies, please let your child's teacher know and Little Blue will be happy to help!

Mission Statement

Be a SHARK for life!

Today I pledge to be a SHARK.

I will be Safe.

I will be Honest.

I will hold myself Accountable.

I will be Respectful.

I will be Kind.
