Per the student handbook, wearing jeans and peace builder shirt on Wednesday is something fun that students have the opportunity participate in on a weekly basis. If squad points are not submitted each week by Tuesday afternoon or if a student has lost their citizenship, they are not eligible to participate in wearing jeans and their peace builder shirt for that week.


The newsletter has important information every week. It is a tool used to help keep parents and families in the know of upcoming events.



For every student who has perfect attendance from the first day of school till our 40th day of school (September 16th) will be invited to an Eegee Party. We would love to have EVERY student be there for this fun activity!


An attendance form will be sent home in the Friday packet this week. Keep an eye out for the form and return to the office. If by chance, the form doesn't make it home, please use the following link to answer the questions.
