The last day of school is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18. We will be dismissing at 12:30 that day.

News from Kindergarten

During the month of April we learned many fairy tales. These stories were written to teach children valuable lessons, like don’t talk to strangers, listen to your parents, and always do your best. Pictured are some of our STEM challenges, where students had to create something to solve the problem that many of the characters faced.

News from Sixth Grade

Sixth graders had a wonderful time at Merrowvista this week!
