Message from the Principal

Jo Ann Bettencourt - Principal

We had a great turn out for the Día de los Muertos Festival/Carnival. It was so great to see all the families and the students in costume. The money raised by this event will go toward different grade level events like 5th grade environmental camp. Thank you to everyone who attended.                                                       

We are excited to announce that we will be offering the first of this school year’s ADA make up day on Saturday, December 3rd from 8:00 – 12:00. This is a great opportunity for your child make up an absence! Drop off your child who has one or more absence and use that time to go do some holiday shopping. This program will feature a morning of engaging enrichment for your child. Breakfast will be available for the regular, free, and reduced rates. Applications are available in the office.

Finally, we have two barrels in the office:  The first is a “Stuff the Bus” toy drive barrel and the other is a “Tis the Season” food drive barrel.  If you are interested in donating a new, unwrapped toy or canned/nonperishable food items, please drop them off in the office.  Thank you!

Message from our Health Office

Parents of 1st graders, if you haven’t done so please have your child’s physician fill out and sign the “Report of Health Examination for School Entry” form, also known as the CHDP form.  This form was mailed out to all parents of 1st graders who did not have a completed form on file.  If you choose not to have your child receive a health examination as part of the school entry requirement please come in and request a “Waiver of Health Examination for School Entry”.
