 Upcoming Events

​​Watch D.O.G.S.  If you were unable to attend the Watch DOG kickoff meeting - No Worries! The link to join is right here!  Look in the middle column of this page where you will find​​ the link to apply for a background check and a link for the WD registration form. Your background check approval email MUST be forwarded to Mrs. Bowen before she can add you to the calendar website.

What is Spirit Store?  Once a month, we have a 'store' where students are able to come in and purchase various items: small trinkets, t-shirts, hats, bandannas, etc. It does take quite a bit of manpower to run the store, so any help you can provide is greatly appreciated! Teachers take students to the store at some point during the day. You are welcome to bring your child and shop together before school between 7:25 and 7:55 a.m.
