  • Spirit Squad- Friday, November 15th will be Moustache Day. We will also be collecting donations for Movember (Coins for Cancer) on this day. For every dollar raised your house team will receive 2 points. Spirit Squad will come around to collect the donations on Friday November 15th.
  • Food Donations- Food and toiletry donations are being collected and there is a box in the foyer for any contributions.  Please check expiration dates before donation- half of what has already been donated had to be removed due to expiration.
  • Christmas Store
  • Donations- A box is in the foyer for any donations towards this year's Christmas Store.  Items that would make a great gift for men are often in short supply, so those would be especially appreciated.

Please be advised that field trip fees are due prior to the field trip, unless prior arrangements have been made with the classroom teacher or the office.  We will advise in the weekly email when they are sent.
  • Scent Aware School- We are a scent aware school and have many students and staff with significant allergies to perfumes/ colognes/ sprays/ etc.  Please be mindful to restrict usage of scented products when you plan to be in the school.  Students are also advised to refrain from using these products when they will be at school.
