PTO Spring Carnival Planning

The PTO is starting to organize groups to help with the Spring Carnival on April 12th.  Please plan to attend the February 5th PTO meeting so that you can learn about what is being planned for your child.  The meeting starts at 5:00 and we welcome EVERYONE! (If you can’t come at that time, come when you can.  All parents may participate in the PTO and attend meetings even if a background check has not been completed.)


Chromebook Privileges

4th graders are now able to take Chromebooks home. Please follow all guidelines and expectations explained at the meeting.


Parent Advisory Committee Meeting

All parents are invited to a Parent Advisory Meeting with Mr. Craft on Tuesday evening, January 15 at 6:00 in the Multipurpose Room.  The PAC serves four main purposes:  to focus on the big picture, to establish future goals, to assess the needs of the school, and to evaluate policies, procedures and programs.  Everybody is welcome. 


Fifth Grade Spelling Bee

Fourteen fifth graders have qualified to compete in the school spelling bee which will be held on Thursday, January 17 at 1:30 in the gym.  Parents are invited to come watch.  The winner will advance to participate in the division bee to be held in early February.
