2019–2020 Yearbook

In previous years, the school provided a free yearbook to every student, a practice that cost upwards of $5000. Unfortunately, as production costs continued to increase annually, we have reached the point where we can no longer provide yearbooks free of charge. Accordingly, and as previously announced, you can now order yearbooks for $60. We apologize for this change, but also want to be sure that we're providing the same quality yearbook that everyone has come to expect. As always, many thanks to Mrs. Willis and her team of students for their tireless work on this project. To order your yearbook, please visit PermissionClick.

Annual Gala Fundraiser

Many thanks to our parent-teacher organization (PTO) for their work on the upcoming GALA fundraiser on February 29. The annual GALA is one of our three big fundraisers, along with the Fall Fest (Halloween carnival) and the Annual Giving Campaign. Proceeds from this year’s GALA will allow us to continue renovations to the school facility. Last school year, we were able to renovate the preschool, prekindergarten, kindergarten, the Elementary Science Lab, and the staff lounge.

Art Room Renovation

As previously announced, a pipe broke in our Art Room prior to the winter break. Rather than making a temporary fix, we decided to do a complete make-over of the room, something which we had not done in over twenty years. We expect completion of the work in early February. In the meantime, art classes are being held in the Elementary Science Lab (which we renovated last summer).

Sportball Spring Soccer

Sportball spring soccer will play January 7 through March 3 from 3:05 until 4:00 p.m. The cost is $138. Please see our newsletter to sign-up.

Mini Cub's Chorus

We invite pre-K and kindergarten students to join our mini cub's chorus. The chorus will meet January 21 through May 19 from 3:00 until 3:45 p.m. in room 3. The cost is $180. You can make checks payable to Kelsi Williams and drop them off at the front office. The chorus will be performing songs at the spring concert on May 20.

Girl Scouts

We are happy to announce that we will have an after school Girl Scouts troop for students in kindergarten through 3rd grade. The fee is $25 for the year, and we will meet on the second Wednesday of each month in room 13 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
