We need your help!

August 22, 2016

Dear Parents,

  We need your help! Our school has been successful in our behavior initiative by offering a Friday reward. Some of the rewards have been popsicles, dances, and free time. One of the new rewards will be Sweet Treat Friday. We really need donations of Little Debbie cakes, Rice Krispie Treats, Popcorn Balls, mini cupcakes, and individual bags of cookies. Won’t you please help us reward “our” children for good behavior? It’s a win-win for all of us! Thanks for your continued support!

Congratulations! "Why I teach"

"Why I teach"

"Teaching for me is my calling, my way of life. It is also my way of "paying it forward" to all of the teachers that gave me so much during my school life. My life was molded and guided by the Stan Killoughs and the Barbara Murrahs of the world. I strive to be that for my students. I teach so that my students have a place they can feel safe and loved. When my time on Earth is over I want to have made a forever positive impact on our future generations. My sole purpose as a teacher is to not only educate children but to give them the love and guidance that they deserve." Mary Jo Boutwell
