Our students are actively engaged in our 2016-2017 Reading and Running Program. Students in TK-8 have entered into our reading and running challenge. All students are reading daily at school and at home. Please support daily reading by ensuring your child is reading at home each and every day.

Our students have a running challenge to run a total of a marathon at school by May 1st. TK-1 grades students are running a half-marathon and grades 2-8 are running a full marathon. Students run laps daily around our running track; 5 laps = 1 mile. Students keep track of their laps and miles to monitor their running progress towards their marathon goal.

Our school focus is integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math, and Music articulated through all grades. We hold our students to high academic standards and empower them as learners.
