Parents, we need your help!

Iowa Assessments will be taken on March 25th-27th. Eating a nutritious snack before testing helps students concentrate and keeps them energized for the duration of the testing session.  Please consider donating the following items to help us provide students with nutritious snacks during testing that week:

 

  • Granola bars
  • Goldfish
  • Peanut butter cracker sandwiches
  • Cheese cracker sandwiches
  • Rice Krispie Treats
  • bottled water

We have 630 students, so every donation will make a difference. These donations may be dropped off in the main office March 9-12th and March 23rd. Thank you for your support!

 

Parents we have seen an increase in the number of students being dropped off across from the school. Just a note of concern, we have had reports from other parents of almost hitting students. May we suggest that you drop your student at the drop off point at the back of the school, or at the stoplight so they can cross safely.
