Thank you to everyone who came to the BBQ Friday night and to those who came to cast their votes for our new colors.
Our next big event is the Fall Carnival on Friday, October 18th from 6-9 PM inside the school.
A super ENORMOUS thank you to Lowe's for donating the material as well as providing workers to assemble our new playground equipment!
We have had a fantastic first two days, and the forecast looks bright for our students 😎 Just a couple of things to help make the end of your day run smoothly:
➖Carpool students are not dismissed UNTIL buses have left. This can take a few extra minutes but should become quicker as routines are learned by students and staff.
➖Please have your student’s car rider name plate visibly displayed in your front windshield. This helps staff quickly know who you’re picking up.
Thank you for your patience and your grace as we are all learning new things this year. We have the best staff, students, and parents in the world!
We are so excited to bring back our annual Spirit Card fundraiser again this year! Sheets will be sent out on the first day of school (8/20) and students will be selling until Friday, September 20th.
Cards are still only $10 each and don’t expire until 8/2020.
Thanks for your support!
According to the Alabama Department of Public Health, from newborns to college, you can help protect your children from 16 serious diseases by getting them vaccinated. Make sure your kids get any needed vaccines before the back-to-school rush!
As a parent, making sure your children are vaccinated on time is an important step toward ensuring their long-term health. Vaccination also helps protect the health of classmates, friends, relatives, and others in the community.
By following the CDC’s recommended immunization schedule for your children, you help protect them from disease outbreaks.
