Look for important school information and events in the school newsletter. The newsletter will be delivered bi-monthly via email or sent home with your child. To be a part of newsletter, we need at least two volunteers every Monday morning to staple and distribute packets of flyers for those without an email address. This is often the only way some families have to connect with the school and the community so it is an important weekly event. If you have a couple of extra hours on Monday's please consider helping with Newsletter!
