To kick off “March is Reading” month we have scheduled our Read-a-Thon fundraiser for March 1. Students will read for approximately 90 minutes.reading beyond the reading lessons that we do each day.  For our younger students, we will spend a reduced amount of time (based on the young ages) involved in reading activities, both independent and whole group.  For 3rd-5th  grades, we will find a comfy corner or chair and we will read for enjoyment on our own.

It is that easy.  The whole building will participate and the time is done during school on an academic activity. And our staff will be reading, too!  There is nothing to calculate for pages or minutes, and the activities are appropriate for the age groups. Historically this has been a tremendous fundraiser for our classrooms.


 When the air temperature feels like 0 or colder, students will be inside. If your child is well enough to come to school, it is generally assumed that the child is well enough to go outside for recess.  Students staying inside for health reasons must have a note from a doctor.

Reminders about medications at school

All medications must be in the original container and must be accompanied by directions from a doctor.  This policy applies to all medications, including over the counter items such as ibuprofen, aspirin and cough drops.  The directions must include the student’s name, name of the medication, dosage, time to administer, how to administer, the duration of the medication, the reason for it, and any side effects.  Doctors may fax them to the school, but we cannot take them over the phone.
