Testing Tips:

  • Make sure your child gets plenty of rest the night before.
  • Please have your child at school on time.
  • Make sure your child has a healthy breakfast.


Lunch and Learn:

Informal meetings during the lunch hour to share information with parents regarding various topics. They will usually be scheduled monthly and flyers will be sent home to let you know the date and the topic. Feel free to bring your lunch or a snack to munch on while we are sharing – we know this is your lunch time!
