Back to School Night is Monday, August 8th. It begins at 6:30 pm out on the grass. We will meet as a school and then Mrs. Jeppson will release everyone to their classrooms to meet with Teachers.


The 7th & 8th Grade Students who are attending the DC trip this year, will be hosting a Bake Sale during the Back to School Night. Anyone who would like to donate any baked goods to the office, we would greatly appreciate the items! Thank you for your help and support.
