Annual Flag Ceremony – Friday, May 25th at 7:30 am at the Roberts Flagpole

Please join our Cub Scouts & Brownies this Friday before school for a Memorial Day flag ceremony to honor all the men and women who have lost their lives serving our country.

We will sing the National Anthem, say the Pledge of Allegiance and raise new two flags. It’s a wonderful opportunity to remind our students that freedom has come at a cost, and to honor those who have lost their lives protecting that freedom.

Carnival Sweet Shop Donations!!

Donated baked goods can be dropped off at the flagpole before school at 7:40 a.m.:

Wednesday, May 30
Thursday, May 31
Friday, June 1
Or anytime at the Reception Desk at Circle Drive.

Get VIPS Cleared Now!

The district policy is that volunteers and visitors must be VIPS cleared to attend any school event other than lunch or parent conferences. The district is really pushing for compliance on all campuses. This means, you cannot attend an event in your child’s class (like a poetry reading) unless you are VIPS cleared.
