Congratulations to the three classrooms that earned enough compliments to be recognized on the morning announcements. Great job to Ms. Moss’s class, Mrs. Curtis’s class, and Mrs. Simon’s class for doing a great job in the hallways and cafeteria.

We are starting our Character Education Student of the Month recognitions. At the end of each month your teacher will choose the student that best exemplified the character trait for that month. Our character trait for the month of September is “Cooperation”. The chosen student will be presented with a “Student of the Month” certificate on the morning announcements. So, let’s show cooperation every day so you may be chosen as September’s Student of the Month for your class.

Ten for Ten
Have you heard about our amazing Ten for Ten Program? This program raises funds to purchase classroom supplies for our teachers. The program is called Ten for Ten because the suggested donation is $10 for ten months. You also have the option of making a flat donation in any amount, or splitting the donation into three payments. Your contribution has a direct affect on our classrooms! For example, if your child’s teacher needs a new pencil sharpener for her class, all she needs to do is fill out a Ten for Ten request form, and the pencil sharpener will be purchased with the funds from the Ten for Ten Program. If you would like more information on this amazing program, please contact Caryn Cipes, Ten for Ten Program Chair, at
