Welcome back to another school year!  It was wonderful to see many of you attend the Meet the Teacher meetings! 

I'd like to thank all of you who have signed up to be volunteers for lunch/recess duty and to be class parents. We still need more volunteers, please let me know if you can help us.  

There are still somes spaces left in Kindergarten through 5th grades. So let your neighbors and friends in the community know that they can come and register their child in our school.
