Book Drive

We will be giving students books to take home and read over the summer break.  In order to have enough books for every student to take home, we will need some help from everyone in the community to donate books.  We are looking for gently used books for elementary ages students.  If you have books for children from the ages 5 to 11 that you would like to donate, you can drop them off in our office during the month of May.

Walk to School Event

Mark your calendar for April 21 for Walk to School Day!   On this day, our Special Olympics athletes will lead our event, as we walk to school. We hope that students and their families will meet staff at the C3 parking lot to walk to school. Meet between 8:00 - 8:15 am, so we can begin our walk promptly at 8:15 am. Let's show our support for our Special Olympics athletes with a crowd behind them as they lead us to the front of the building.
