Go inside a snake's tooth

Let someone be a flower or a dove but I like being a snake's tooth

It's a venom world with a song of bravery.

Maybe it's a riddle, maybe there's light.

Maybe it's like a haven, a home, a crazy world of song and color. 

Perhaps it's sweet and colorful.

 We are asking that every child be registered in the After School 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 Mrs. O'Leary 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. 


Please call the office if your child is absent. 

Children are asked to wear white or red tops and blue bottoms on Fridays.
