for open book checkout. 8:45-3:10 is reserved for CMS classes.

checkout books.If at any time you need help, please let me know.END OF THE YEAR TRADITIONS!!We may not have the students here with us but we still carried out two End of the Year traditions today. Our retirees took a slide down the water slide (normally done at field day) and they rang the old school bell to signal the end of the school for the 2019-2020 school year. We will miss these happy faces next year! Good luck to Mrs. Brown, Ms. Combo Mrs. Kirby, Ms. Perry, Mrs. Rose, and Mrs. Smith!!!Click a link below to see a video:Ringing the Bell Mrs. Brown~Waterslide Ms. Combo~ Waterslide

Library Update with the Coronavirus Break:
*Check out the FREE Digital Resources page and the other grade level links using the menu to the far left of this page.
* AR has been stopped at this time. Teachers have adjusted student goals for the 3rd nine weeks and AR certificates have been sent home to those that met their adjusted goal. There wil be no 4th nine weeks goal. In lieu of AR, you can have your student answer these questions before, during, and after reading. There are questions for Non-Fiction (real) stories and Fiction stories.
* Calling all library books home. Please return all library books to school as soon as possible. If you cannot make it to school, you can return the library book to the breakfast or lunch delivery staff when they come by your house later this week. Your student does not need to take an AR test on their book. I am requesting library books be returned in hopes of having fewer books lost during this break from school. If you are unsure if your student has a book out or need to know the title(s), please let me know and I will look it up for you. Thank you for helping me bring the books "home."
*Don't forget to order your yearbook!! We only order 100 and we have less than 20 yearbooks left to sell. If you want one, please make sure to order online at www.ybpay.lifetouch.com and use our school ID code 13506320. If you have any questions, please message me. I'll be glad to help! Yearbooks must be ordered by May 1. We are not ordering extras so don't miss your chance to get yours!
