Through our school’s donations, both organizations have been able to provide many families and children gifts for the holiday season. Sign up to contribute to the LYDIA Home HERE and MFS HERE.more >>

Fourth Grade Farewell is an end of the year celebration for the outgoing fourth grade students. It is an event planned and run by a group of fourth grade parent volunteers. It is held on one afternoon during the last week of the school year. Details are to come.
This school-wide event for Grades 1-4 is held in June during the school day. The Field Day chair assists the PE staff by organizing volunteers to supervise events, keep scores, and blow whistles loudly. Parents are welcome to be supportive spectators or pitch in and help. More details to come.
