Get ready to walk to school with all your neighbors and classmates on national Walk to School Day, Wednesday, October 2nd.

Walking is a good physical activity for everyone, and has been shown to promote learning in children. 

We will have designated starting points for walking groups. Help your child make a poster. If you do not normally walk to school, use this opportunity to teach your child safe routes to school.

Oct. 10th-16th - Fall Book Fair Coming Soon!

Save the Date! The Fall Book Fair starts on Thursday, October 10th. This Arctic Adventure will have students chilled and thrilled with the book selections this book fair offers. In addition, we will have evening hours for the book fair. Our Family Fun Night on Tues, Oct 15th will allow parents and families to check out the book fair in the Media Center, then they can make book-based crafts and activities in the All Purpose Room.
