    We are encouraging all students in grades 4-8 to take advantage of the 1-to-1 Chromebooks provided in the classrooms. In order for the students to take the chromebooks home, they need to sign up for an insurance policy. We will be working with the PTA to collect the permission slips and insurance information. The cost for insurance coverage for the entire year is $21. Please drop by the office to ask about purchasing Chromebook insurance.

    Hello Huskies!


    As we move into Spring Break, the students will be preparing for State Testing. SBAC Testing will begin the week of May 6 and will continue through May 17. It is very important that students rest well and eat a good breakfast before coming to school. Please encourage your child to try his or her best on these exams. We have some exciting events coming up with Open House for Grades TK-4 on Thursday, April 18 and for Grades 5-8 on Thursday April 25. Both events will begin at 5:30PM and continue until 7:00 PM. Remember it is always good to encourage good study habits at home and encourage your child to read every day. We look forward to seeing you in the days ahead!

    Thanks for all of your support,

    Kevin Tonai, Principal
