Special Announcements

A quick reminder that we will be having our third annual talent show today and show times will be 8:30-10:00 for kindergarten through second grades and 12:30-2:00 for third grade through fifth grade students in the MPR.  We hope you all can make it!

Also remember to please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want all of our plants to grow!

Finally, remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, on your way to and from school.
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
