Home / School News / Week of March 9 – 13


Thank you for all the support in “paying it forward” for another school to get the Mindset Mission Presentation. We sold many, many yo-yos and brought in over $1000.00 to go toward another school’s event. Way to go Ruth King! Hopefully your children are enjoying the yo-yos and are learning to do some of the tricks outlined in the guide.

Thank you also goes out to the PAC for organizing the “Spring Dance” and for those of you who volunteered at the dance or by making cupcakes etc. The kids had a blast!

  • Please send a spare set of clothes to school with your child in case they get wet at recess or lunch. Please also LABEL your children’s clothing and other items. Our lost and found is overflowing with unclaimed items!! We end up taking bags of items to the thrift store because items are not claimed.
  • NO HOME TOYS AT SCHOOL – Reminder to check your child’s backpack before sending them to school. Some students are still bringing toys to school from home. This includes sports equipment such as basketballs etc. “Show and Tell” items are okay.
  • Cell phones need to stay in student back packs while at school. There is a school phone for students to use in case of an emergency.
  • Please remember to drop your children off on Matson Road rather than at the front entrance of the school. It is much safer on Matson Road. Thank you for your attention to this.
