Playgound Opening!
Starting on Monday, our elementary students will be able to use the playground for recess.  Our students have been amazing with our organized recesses, but we also know that they love to swing, slide and run!  We will be following enhanced protocols for cleaning playground equipment between each recess to continue keeping our students as safe as possible.  
Crazy Hat & Sock Day is Coming!
To celebrate the end of the first quarter, our elementary students will have a CRAZY HAT & SOCK day.

Just let us know!
We are so thankful that all our families are being proactive in keeping their kids home if they have any symptoms of illness.  Just a reminder that if your student will be absent, please let our front offices know (letting their teachers know is also recommended).  Please contact the following: 
Extended absences: If you think your student will be absent for an extended period of time, MS Teams is a great way to have them communicate with their teacher to receive the work they will be missing.  If you need to pick up books for your student to work with while they are absent, contact our front offices. 
Recess Volunteers
We are in need of some willing volunteers to help run our recess and give our elementary teachers some breaks during the day.  If you are available, please contact Alyssa Baker at
Join us for Weekly Prayer
All are welcome to join our prayer ministry team from 8:00-9:00am each Friday as we cover our school and our community in prayer. Please wear a mask and sign in at the front office for temperature checks and symptoms screenings.
