scissors box top  

Make sure to save those box tops for the winter collection date. Box tops will be collected again on Friday, March 8th 
Check your cereal boxes, ziplock bag boxes, butter packaging, fruit snacks, etc. for the Box Top logo. We'll take them any way that you can send them in, but if you or your children have time to trim around the box tops, that saves our box top crew some time.  If you have any questions, please email the PTO at

Good Evening Hawks!

I'm happy to announce a change in our front office: Tracy is growing her career into kickboxing and will be in our office from 7-11. Holly has picked up the rest of the in the attendance role. So when you call the office you can talk to Wendy, Tracy, and Holly!  

We are going to be hiring a new teacher for next year and we would like some parents to participate in the process. If you are interested, please email me a response to the following questions:

Your name.

Why do you want to be part of the process?

The grade level your child/ren is in and any special or extracurricular programs they participate in.

Please email me by end of day Tuesday if you would like to participate. I will notify those selected by Wednesday morning. We are targeting interviews for next Monday (the 11th) afternoon.

Last note: if you haven't already done so, please send in your returning student packets. We need to know so we can get classes organized for next year!

Have a great week,
