Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”~ Matthew 5:9

Lunch Time Supervisor Position
We are looking for two full-time Lunch Time Supervisors for September 2019. If you are interested please contact us at the office for more details.
Sun Protection – With the warm, beautiful days of spring and summer approaching, parents need to be aware of, and take action to prevent damage from the sun’s rays to your child(ren)’s skin. Students are outside for two separate 15-minute recess breaks and a 40-minute lunch recess break each day. Please assist us in keeping your children safe and healthy by ensuring your children wear appropriate clothing, including close-toed shoes, a hat and sunblock. Our staff cannot apply sunblock on to your children.
Missing Textbooks and Library Books
We are currently missing 474 books from our Library reading collection! Parents, we ask that you continue to check closets, trunks, under beds, etc. for any school books that may be hiding and return them to us as soon as possible. The more we receive back, the fewer we have to replace. By working together to locate missing textbooks and library books, we are able to responsibly minimize costs to the school. If a book belonging to the school has been damaged or lost, please contact your child’s teacher and he/she will assist you in determining the replacement cost. All books are due back June 14, 2019 so that we can conduct an inventory and make purchases for the new school year.
