All students should wear black bottoms (pants or skirts), black shoes, and the following color tops: PK/kindergarten: red 1st/2nd grade: green 3rd/4th grade: white 5th grade: red 6th grade: green 7th/8th grade: white

Cross-age buddies help older students come to understand what it means to have younger students look up to them. Younger students acquire a sense of belonging and security. Our cross age buddies program is now in all grades PK - 8. Ask your child about it (see photo at left).

The Pizza and Bowling Night planned for tomorrow has been canceled.
