Happy April!

Friday is an exciting day!  We celebrate our 3rd-5th graders with their last Key Stallion Friday assembly and then in the evening is our PTA carnival!  Please come & enjoy this super fun community event!  We also ask that parents sign up to volunteer for an hour shift.  We have many activities that need your help!  If we fill all of our shifts, then all parents can spend some fun time with their families.  The classes with the most volunteers will receive an extra recess provided by our administration and recognition on our marquis and at our EOY student assembly!  PLEASE sign up to help with this great event!

Career Day is Coming…Can you Help?


We are in the process of finding speakers for this day and are asking for your assistance.  Career Day becomes an even more exciting experience for our students when members of their own family and community speak to our classes.  We are looking for a variety of careers: mechanics, managers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc. Each speaker will do several presentations that will last approximately 15 minutes, to share information about his/her occupation and hold a question and answer period. Speakers are encouraged to speak to more than one grade level.  Watch for information in future enews & from your teachers!
