mother's day.jpgRemember that Mother’s Day is Sunday May 14th. Make sure you make her day extra special.

A mother holds a special place in the hearts and minds of her children.  Mother’s Day is May 14th and there is no better way to celebrate than with the whole family.

We’re sure sleeping in on Mother’s Day sounds nice and that having some alone time can make for an enjoyable day.  But doesn’t it sound like a better idea to make this holiday a family day?  We encourage you to get outside and spend some quality time with your kids and loved ones.

Friday, May 12th: Mother’s Day Breakfast! Mom’s please stop by and enjoy a bite to eat before heading out for your day. Thank you for all you do in your child’s life. We love you Moms!


May 1st we are having our Graduation Pictures & Class Pictures. Students will be wering their Caps & Gowns. 

Class of 2016


Parents please join us on Friday May 19th in celebrating your child’s accomplishments this school year. The celebration starts at 10:00am


May 8th - May 12th  This week honors those hard working, patient and understanding people whom we entrust our children to. Teachers help shape our kids in a positive direction, and affect who they are and who they become.


Thank you teachers for all you do!

It’s easy to make with supplies you probably already have on hand, and it makes a great toy. No wonder it’s a classic!Click to find similar content by grade or subject.
