NOTICE - PTO Teacher's Grant Request

Mrs. Waters is requesting $255 to fund the purchase of a rug for her first grade classroom.  The rug is used on a daily basis, providing age-appropriate and alternative seating for group and independent instruction as well as a place to play during indoor recess. This rug replaces her previous rug which was damaged. The PTO Executive Board and School Administration are in support of this grant request.  We will vote on this grant request at the next General PTO meeting on March 13.

Lifetouch Yearbooks

There is a very confusing, repeating piece of spam email asking parents to purchase a yearbook from Lifetouch. Yearbooks will be purchased by the 5th Grade Committee and distributed to 5th grade students. Please do not purchase a yearbook using the link in that email. If you've purchased a yearbook from Lifetouch, please reach out to and we will try to get a refund.
