Around Our School

Spring Party

We hope you’ll join us for our school-wide spring party tomorrow (April 18) at 1:30.  Grades K-2 will participate in an egg hunt behind the school.  K-2 parents should enter through the back gate to the playground area to watch the egg hunt at 1:30. At the conclusion of the egg hunt, you will be invited to follow your child’s class inside to continue with the festivities. Parents of students in grades 3-5 should enter through the front door and proceed to classrooms. 

If you wish to take your child with you at the conclusion of the party, be sure to sign him or her out with the teacher.

Parking is not permitted in the bus lane.
