Principal's Message

Good afternoon!  It looks and feels like summer has decided to show up for our last week of school!  Today students in Kindergarten and first grade have been participating in our first of two Reading Days!!  Students have been participating in reading activities throughout the day, including:  Musical Reading Chairs, ABC Scavenger Hunt, Spelling Kickball, Buddy Ring Toss/Read, Reading Hopscotch and Teacher Read!  Each Kindergarten class has been paired with a first grade class for these events.  Several of the events were held inside, while others were set up in the shade to keep students as cool as possible. 

We will continue with our Reading Days tomorrow with more buddy reading and creating bookmarks together.  Tomorrow is also move up day for our first graders.  They will be heading to MSES in the morning to see and explore their new school!  We are so proud of our students and wish them well as they move on to second grade.

We will then use the rest of this week to enjoy the last few days with our students.   Thursday will be the last day of preschool with Friday being the last day for our Kindergarteners and first graders.  Dismissal on Friday will begin at 11:55 am.

A reminder to please send in all outstanding library books as soon as possible.  In addition, families of first grade students are reminded to send in their child’s updated physical forms as soon as the physical has been completed. 

Report cards will go home with students on Friday.  We have had a wonderful year of learning together!
