Mae Carden thought of the week:

 "It is not necessary to give your children all your time. Generally speaking, quality is more valuable than quantity, but always try to be available at important times."

Dear Parents,

Winter sports season is upon us. All games will be held on Saturdays!


Grades 4th thru 6th are doing Basketball which will be coached by Mr. Leyva. The first practice of the season will be held on Tuesday, January 12, 2016 at 3:15pm to 4:15 pm on the basketball court. Jr.Suns YMCA leagues are the best and most fun! Coaches’ work on a basic ball handling, passing, shooting and defensive skills while introducing defensive and offensive schemes. Children enjoy learning this great game!


Grades 1st thru 3rd are doing Soccer which will be coached by Mr. Castaneda. The first practice of the season will be held on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm on the grass field. Youth Soccer is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills.

Your child will learn to dribble, pass and strike the ball correctly and the positions of the game. We use coaching methods where your child will learn the sport and have fun in the process! Every child plays while making friends and learning new techniques!


Let me know if you have any questions!


Thank you,

Coach Hendricks

Just a Few Friendly Reminders:

Every child must be registered for the Enrichment Program (even if you never use it) so that if an emergency should arise and you are not able to arrive by 3:30 PM or if you have to drop your children off before 8 AM they will have a place to go. 

If you need forms please contact Ms. Chilton or the office.


Please use the car pool line when picking up or dropping off students.  If you need to go to office, park in the parking lot. 


If your student is absent, please call the office by 9:30AM. 


Visitors on Campus!

Parents, friends, family, and visitors, if you are coming on campus, please make sure you sign in at the office! Do not go to the classroom without checking in at the office.

This will help keep classroom disruptions to a minimum and insure campus safety!

Thank you for your cooperation!
