A Note from Mrs. Grant

This week we have a 2pm dismissal on Monday. We will also be starting the third quarter of the school year on Wednesday. I can’t believe we are halfway through the school year! The sixth grade students make me smile every day with their creativity and passion for learning.

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. This week our Snack Shack managers are Gus Corbett and Connor Williamson. Snacks and the receipts must be brought in on Monday. Receipts for reimbursement can be brought to Mrs. Davis in the office with a note detailing it is for Snack Shack. Thank you for your support! 

Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
