December E-Blast

Dear Parents,

What a wonderful time of the year.  We hope everyone has safe holidays with family and friends.  We appreciate you!

Character Attribute for December:  Cooperation

Elizabeth Food Bank

Thank you, everyone, for your donations to the food drive for the Elizabeth Food Bank. We were so excited to see our students open up their hearts to help others less fortunate.

Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for someone to help level large storage containers on the west side of the building.  Please e-mail Ms. Anne if you can help

Re-spread playground chips – Bring a rake and work gloves. This does not have to be completed during school hours.

After School Sports Games

We have a busy schedule this sports season and we enjoy seeing students come cheer on their classmates! However, we do not have adult supervision for the student fans during these home games and encourage parents to join their students in the stands to root for their fellow Wildcats.

Free & Reduced Lunch Program

Free & Reduced lunch applications can be accessed here. You will need to register an account with your student’s ID number.

Lost & Found

Please check lost and found! All unclaimed, unnamed items will be donated to a homeless shelter for children downtown.  Last day to claim items is the end of the day on Thursday, November 16th.
