THAT'S A WRAP - 2022/2023

So many great initiatives and events happened this year. Thank you all for the continued support and commitment to building our community. We look forward to next year.



Kindergarten Connections will be held on August 15 and 16, 2023. This is an opportunity for each student to experience 75-minutes in the classroom with the kindergarten teachers and other incoming kindergartners. During this time, the students will play games, draw pictures, listen to a story, meet teachers, and get to know some new friends. Adults will be offered a separate session during this time to learn more about our school and ask questions.

The goal is to have all kindergarteners sign up for one session. Please use

YOUR CHILD’S FIRST AND LAST NAME when registering for one session on this Kindergarten Connections Sign Up.



Welcome Back Bears is our next event and will take place in September.

Stay tuned for more details

A note from Julie Stonehouse

The excitement in the building has been HIGH this week! Thank you for all the ways you have supported your children this year. It has been a wonderful year of learning and growing together. Also, I’m sharing a few photos from our 5th grade Exhibition/Graduation Day. We are so proud of these kids. Congratulations, 5th graders!
