Message From the Principal


Thank you to everyone for coming to our Curriculum Night and KC Kid's Marathon Kick Off! Whenever parents get involved with their child's school day and are up to date on what curriculum is being taught, they can better support learning at home.

Mark your calendars for Friday, September 18th for the annual PTA movie night and Spirit Wear Pick Up! In what has become an annual Little Blue tradition, Movie Night is always a great evening of fun, family, and seeing friends. More info coming soon!

Want to support your child's learning but aren't sure where to start? HAVE THEM READ! All the education research proves that reading every night is the most effective way to grow students reading abilities and skills, which in turn can positively affect every other subject. Is your child reading every night?


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.
