Mae Carden thought of the week:

"Do not seek popularity for your children. As a rule, popularity means lowering your own standards to please the lower standard of other people. Popularity means the loss of real individuality."

-Mae Carden

Just a Few Friendly Reminders:

Every child must 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. 


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

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


Visitors on Campus!

Parents, friends, family, and visitors, if you are coming on campus, please make sure you sign in at the office!

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

Thank you for your cooperation!
