Fruit/Veggie Program - Beginning next week, our students will have access to fresh fruits and vegetables in their classrooms. The healthy snacks are provided to students through a federal grant from the Department of Defense. On a limited basis, these items will be delivered to classrooms for students to enjoy during class time, which will boost their metabolism during the learning process.

Student Drop Off - We are asking that our parents who drop off students in the morning to drive slowly and drop off children at the curbside only. Lately, we have seen an increase in the number of parents double parking and letting students out of the car to cross between vehicles in the drop off lane, which is incredibly dangerous. We also ask that you drive slowly and be on the lookout for children at all times.
