Message From the Principal

What an incredible United Way spirit week! I am amazed and so proud of how our Little Blue community pulled together to raise $1,000 to help those less fortunate in our community! What an incredible lesson in kindness and gerenosity that our students lived. Thanks again to Jaci Sasser for her organization and work in making it a truly memorable week for Little Blue Sharks! 

PTA movie night was a great success and a wonderful evening! The storms rolled in and the rain fell as we got comfy in the gym and enjoyed the movie "Home" as a Little Blue family. What a great night!

Next Thursday, October 1 Little Blue will be having our first Dad's, Dude's, and Donuts event from 8:15 - 8:40 in the school cafeteria. This is an opportunity exclusively for dad's and other dudes to come in, share breakfast with their students, and spend some time in Little Blue. Little Blue will provide the donuts, juice, and space, and students and their dads and dudes will provide the good times. Look for a flyer coming home next week!

Are you a SHARK? Our school rules and school goal for students is one in the same: creating Safe, Honest, Accountable, Respectful, and Kind students. Do you see your child being a SHARK?

Mission Statement

Little Blue's mission is to empower our community of learners to develop skills for life-long learning in a safe and positive environment.

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.
