Carpool Pick Up Reminders
For the safety of students and families as well as efficient procedures, please remember the following when picking up after school:
1) All carpool pick up must occur through the carpool line. Students cannot be picked up at the church doors. Parents may park and meet their students at the school reception desk as an alternative to the carpool line. 
2) Once you have picked up your child(ren), please exit via the Eden Avenue exit. Do not exit through the parking lot to the frontage road. This a huge safety concern with busing occurring at that time.  
Young Rembrandts - Cartoons!  
Does your child have a great sense of humor to complement his or her artistic skills? If so, your child will LOVE a Young Rembrandts Cartoon class. Our students will learn how to personify inanimate objects, as they breathe life into the sun and moon, transforming them into funny cartoon characters. A humorous bird feeding sequence will teach your child visual and sequential story telling. We'll also create drawings that feature colorful and expressive forest animals.
