Core Virtue of the Month: “Faithfulness”

  •  Faithfulness is standing by those we love, those we serve and what we believe.

The Read-A-Thon was a great success! Thank you for everyone who participated. All of the money raised will go toward purchasing new science curriculum. Congratulations to Ava for raising the most money and Kaylee for reading the most minutes. Mrs. Heinitz’s class won an ice cream party for reading the most minutes and Mrs. Hancock’s class gets one too for raising the most money. Great job everyone!

St Patrick’s Day Parade: Saturday, March 17th. Parade begins at 9:30am: We will be staging for the Parade on Amador Plaza, usually somewhere between Sprouts and Panera. The Parade is scheduled to start at 9:30, please arrive between 8:30 and 9:00 and remember, WEAR YOUR GREEN! Look for the SUV with the rainbow on top.

Student Enrollment: We want you to know that we are busy making plans for the 2018 – 2019 school year and it would be very helpful to know if you are re-enrolling your child.

We would really appreciate it if you would please let us know if you are planning on re-enrolling your child for next year as soon as possible.
