Here's an interesting article about the academic reasons to play board games with your children.

Please remember to send in your
"Boxtops for Education"

 

 
 
Third graders are dismissed from the door on First Avenue closest to our classrooms and Lincoln Avenue. 
 
 
If you would like your child to leave from a different door, please send a note to school indicating from which door he/she should be dismissed.
 
 
 
Please remember that school policy requires you to send a written note to school on each day that your child is being dismissed to "another parent, guardian, or civic group."  
 
 
 
 
Only water bottles with a "sip" top are allowed in the classroom.
