Join us Thursday, May 11  for the carnival! It's a fun way to end the school year, and wristbands give you all access to carnival fun which includes all games and rides. Parents and kids age two and under are FREE!

  • Raffle Tickets - Be sure to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to dunk Mrs. Jones! Purchase wristbands and raffle tickets here ( ).
  • Cake Walk - Calling all bakers - we need cakes for the Cake Walk! Dust off your favorite recipe and bring your cake to the carnival.  Baked goods such as rice crispy treats, brownies, cookies are welcome as well!

As with every event, we need volunteers to help things run smoothly. We encourage you to work a shift if you can - check the sign-up here.

Teacher Appreciation Week

Since the originally scheduled week is a short week and the 6th graders will be at Wildwood, our Teacher Appreciation Week has moved to May 8-12.

We're also providing three lunches that week - Potluck, Tex/Mex and a Royals themed lunch. Please click here if you're able to volunteer - any help is appreciated!

We'll be emailing the Speciality Surprise Days info - each grade has "adopted" specific speciality teachers and staff.
