March 2019


  • Parent Teacher Conferences

March 13th & 14th from 4 to 8:00 pm.

This is such a valuable opportunity to meet and discuss the academic status of students with their parents.

We are looking forward to seeing all parents and students!


  • Inclement Weather Delays

In case of extreme weather, many times we will have a 2-hour delayed start to the school day.   On these days, doors will open at approximately 9:20 am and students will go directly to their classrooms as breakfast will not be served. Please make sure your students have breakfast so they have a strong start to their day.  Thanks much!


  • Student of the Month

Students are celebrated monthly for going above and beyond by being  kind to others, working hard in school and showing respect to themselves and others .  These students are surprised and celebrated  in front of  their peers and awarded fun and meaningful prizes by Ms. Baker and Mr. Chacon for their excellence.  We post pictures of these students on our front window!   Take a look :)


  • Field Trips

Field Trips are very exciting for our students and we love the opportunity to enhance their learning with these experiences!  Some important information for you to know . . .

  • Parents that volunteer as chaperones must have clearance from the office (background check).
  • Chaperones are not able to ride the bus (for liability reasons) and will need to provide their own transportation to and from the field trip location.
  • Students must stay with their assigned group at all times.
  • Students and are not permitted to be checked out early by parents-- if they ride the bus they must come home on the bus.

Thank you for chaperoning our kids on these special occasions!!
