2017-2018 Scholarships : Scholarships for 2017-2018 are now available. Please stop by the school office to pick-up an application if you are interested. Scholarships are “first come first serve” and are awarded according to household size/income. All applications will be considered incomplete unless a 1040 tax form is submitted with the application. If you are currently receiving scholarship/financial assistance, you will need to reapply and submit the appropriate forms to the school office.
Acts of Kindness: This year our newly assembled student council members have chosen to do “Acts of Kindness” as a school service project. Beginning this week, if your child does something kind for someone else they can write it on slips of paper that will be located in your child’s classroom (please see list of ideas on attached paper). Acts of kindness slips will be linked together and will be displayed in the gym during the second semester. Additionally, if you snap a photo of your child doing something kind for someone else we will display it in the gym with their Acts of Kindness slip.
Box Tops for Education: Has your child been collecting box tops? remember, Box Tops should be turned into your child’s classroom teacher. The class with the most Box Tops collected at the end of each quarter will receive a special treat from Home and School. Thank you for your help with this ongoing fundraiser for our school.
Thank you and have a wonderful week!
