Parent Portal - We are excited to announce that student transportation information can now be found in one single location, Home Base, also known as Powerschool. In order to provide the highest level of customer service to our families we are asking those of you who do not yet have a Powerschool account to stop by the school office to complete the necessary form.  You can find more information at  Once you have a Powerschool account, look for the transportation tab to see your student’s transportation status and type. If your student is a bus rider, stop and route information is also provided.

Mrs. Nance - As of June 30th Mrs. Nance will be retiring from Underwood Elementary. It has been a pleasure working along side her for the past two years as well as five years earlier in our careers.  I wish her well.
EOG Proctors - EOGs begin on May 26th and we continue to be in need of proctors from May 26th - June 2nd. If interested please email Mrs. Nance or Mrs. Churchill.

Science Olympiad - Congratulations to our Science Olympiad Teams Varsity finished in first place and after a review there was a change to one of the events and the results showed that our Junior Varsity also finished in first place. I was very impressed with the hard work, dedication, and perseverance in working on their science skills. Thanks again to all of the volunteers and awesome coaches! 


Number Drummer - Number Drummer is the ultimate math and music experience. See it! Feel it! Hear it! Play it! Number Drummer Live is a one-of-a-kind interactive show that has the entire audience “drumming up” mathematics for an awesome “surround sound” musical performance! The show takes participants through an entertaining and engaging sequence of music and math skills needed to be a Number Drummer and play in the show’s final performance. It is an awesome display of math that is heard as a rhythmic work of art. Special schedule for Friday, May 19 is here.
