End of the Day Pick Up Procedures

Our dismissal time is 11:05 a.m. & 3:12 p.m.      We ask that you not arrive before 11:05 a.m. or 3:12 a.m. and that you wait on the assigned benches for your child.  Part of our educational program is their outdoor education with peers.  If they miss this time due to parents coming early, they are losing out on this experience.  Also, if parents are here before the students are packed up and dressed for home it is a disruption to the flow of these procedures.  Thank you for your support as we strive to provide the best education possible.

STEM Night Success

We had 100 participants register to attend our family STEM night!   The evening was designed to support our focus on math and science this year. The families were given a hand out explaining each activity in each room and were free to go to the classrooms in any order and for how long they wished. There was staff support in each classroom. The families participated in a pumpkin magic and color changing milk activity, measured out a snack mix, explored with magnets, created electricity( using a battery, wire, and light bulb), explored ramps, and took a marshmallow/gumdrop building challenge. We hope the evening created some excitement for families to collaborate in learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.   Thank you to everyone who made this event a success!  Check out a few photos from the night below!
