We are looking forward to another good volleyball season. We would like to remind the parents that we are not responsible to babysit your children during this time. During away games, the school staff is not responsible for younger children who go along with their older siblings.

Box Tops

We will again be collecting Box Tops and ink cartridges this year. We have been very thankful for the benefits of them in the past years.

Gift Cards

We have gift cards again this year that can be purchased at the office. You receive the gift card in the amount that you pay, and the school receives a percentage back.

Kindergarten

During the week of August 28, we plan to have kindergarten on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  We are doing this because of the early Labor Day vacation September 1-4.  This will allow us an extra day of kindergarten because we are off Friday and Monday.
