Principal's Newsletter

As usual, the last month has flown by and we are finding ourselves at the beginning of another fun and eventful month full of great learning opportunity for our students!    

Our District Needs Assessment will be available this coming week.  Your input is important to our success and efforts to provide the best education possible for all students.  We appreciate your feedback in advance!  Please be looking for information on how to access the online survey this coming week.

            The Home & School Food Fundraiser will kick off on Tuesday, February 5th.  Students will have an opportunity to sell items to raise funds to support our school and have a chance to earn a LIMO ride with Thunder, VIP Seating for the Anti-Bullying MAGIC Show, and many cool prizes!

            A HUGE Thank you to all families participating in this year’s Jump Rope Fundraiser!  Total monies raised this year were $1,004.00!!!  The amount earned this year is nearly doubled from last year’s earnings!  Way to Go Hounds!  Our Top Money Earner this year was Garytt Benson!  Congratulations Garytt!  Coach Rennison has been organizing this fundraiser to support the American Heart Association for over 20 years and has raised over $25,000 in all!!! 

 I’d like to thank our Home & School Committee for providing concessions for this year’s 5th and 6th grade home basketball games!  Thanks for all of your continued efforts!

Our 5th and 6th grade Basketball teams will be playing at Santa Fe on Tuesday, February 5th.  Good Luck to all of our Greyhounds and Coaches!

Volleyball interest forms will be sent home with students in grades 3rd-6th later this week.       

As always, if there are ever questions or concerns, I am happy to discuss them with you.  Feel free to email or call the elementary office at 660-335-6348.
