Superintendent's Letter Regarding COVID-19

From Principal

Please find a letter from Catherine Gallagher, Superintendent, in your student’s Friday folder.  As information becomes available, we will get it to you through email, our websites, Facebook, and phone calls if necessary.

There is a flier in your student’s Friday folder from the CDC website about stopping the spread of germs.  Please read and share with your child.

Reminder that the In-District Transfer Student Update/Transfer Application forms are due back to Central Office by April 15th. 


It is with heavy hearts that we have made the decision to postpone Pie Breakfast and the Puppet Show until a later date.  We value the health and safety of our community and want to support prevention efforts.  Thank you to all those who have offered to donate.  If you have already made a pie, please share a picture of you and your loved ones enjoying it on our Facebook page, throw it in the freezer for our future event, or consider donating it to the warming shelter.

From Guidance Counselor

In guidance this month in 6th grade, we are exploring the importance and history of Black History month and Women's History month.  Students are doing research projects on famous leaders and will present to the class in a couple weeks. 

In 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades we are learning the best ways to ask for help.  In 5th grade, we're working on more problem solving skills. 

Kindergarten and 2nd grade have Laura Darling, our nurse, coming in for health class.  They are learning about personal safety such as crossing the road and how to prevent the spread of germs. 

Please let me know (521-5458) if you feel your student is having anxiety with the virus and would like to check in.
