Hot Lunch Update

We have been working very closely with MyHotLunchBox and will continue with this program for the remainder of the school year.  The suitability of vendors is assessed on several points each week. As a result, some vendors will be discontinued after Christmas and some new ones will be added.  At the end of the year, we will work with FSA to evaluate this program against other offerings and make a determination for next year. We greatly appreciate all of the hard work and time that Mrs. Jordan has dedicated to running this weekly treat for our students. Please contact the school office if you have any questions.


Holiday Wishes Vendor Fair

 Please join us for our annual Vendor Fair on Friday, November 16 beginning at 6:00 P.M.  Your one stop shop for all of your Christmas gift favorites!

Family Code Word

Recently it was in the news that an 11 year old girl was approached by a man in a white van. He told her he was sent by her mother because her brother was in an accident . She asked for the family code word- the man sped off. The code word saved that little girl. Do you have a family code word ? Now is a good time to sit down with your family and establish one.
