Number Drummer was a great and interactive performance for our students. Thank you to our PTA for this opportunity. Here is an example for the k-2 work session.


Principal and the Pea Come support our students and the Arts Team at our K-1 Performance, Principal and the Pea on Thursday, May 25th at 7pm.

Passion Action Project: Some Art of Animation elective students are closing out their quarter with a Passion Action Project and need some donations. Along with animated PSA about the worth and talents of homeless and displaced people, they are constructing care packages for them. They really want to know they can make a difference. A drop off box will be in the carpool area this week only as well as in the learning lab for anything you or your students may have to contribute including but not limited to: List of items. Thank you


Mr. Shillings is seeking feedback for Assistant Principal search. If you would be willing to provide feedback in characteristics and traits for our new AP (starting 2017-18 school year) - please complete the following form - Feedback form to provide that information.  

Exciting news!  We will be purchasing $4,000 worth of new books for our Leveled Book Room. These books will be used by teachers when teaching small groups of students k-5 to increase their reading comprehension. Thank you to our PTA for their financial support to make this happen.

Critical Thinking

Keep breathing and talking to your students about school. This is an exciting/stressful/anxious time of the year. To quote Conscious Discipline: "Feelings do not need to be fixed. They are not wrong or dangerous. Feelings are part of our humanity, helping us to grow and learn" - Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline p180.
