Parents, This summer we made some adjustments to the school uniform requirements.

It was not intended to allow just any athletic shoe. We have students who are far away from wearing a black or brown athletic shoe. We have neon green and pink shoes and even shoes with flashing lights. Please insist your child adheres to the dress code. Thank you.

Mrs. Medrano's Kindergartners received an extra special surprise today! Mrs. Keihnau brought in her children's collection of legos to share at break time! It was wonderful and everyone loved it! We would like to thank Mrs. Keihnau for this special opportunity!!

We want to thank the Parent Council and the parents who worked Tuesday for the Thanksgiving Breakfast. The kids ate well and enjoyed the food! I also know of a lot of moms and dads that were "thankful" they did not have to pack lunch on Tuesday!
