Have a Wonderful Holiday and safe and relaxing break!

The PTO enjoyed spreading Christmas cheer today!  We spoiled our teachers and staff by serving fresh, yummy, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and a cooler of their favorite soft drinks to have through out the day. The PTO also presented each one with a special Christmas gift!  We love our awesome teachers and staff!

Our upper grade students will be receiving a special Christmas gift as well.  When they return from break, they will get to enjoy the new playground!! 

On behalf of the PTO, thank you for always supporting us and the school.  We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a safe and relaxing break!

Playground Equipment Update!!!

The Playground Committee is very excited to present Phase 1 of playground improvements to the track.  First, a “ninja-like” structure similar to what is pictured below will be installed with black “brick” edging and mulch included.  Committee members are meeting next week with playground company representative to finalize pricing, location and time frame for installation.  Also included in Phase 1 will be leveling of the kickball field at the track.  Finally, at the playground behind the PK-2nd grade hall, the school system has graciously removed the red monkey bars and over Thanksgiving break will be 1) moving the rubber mulch from that play area and adding it to existing rubber mulch in another play area; 2) removing the black “bricks” from the area to be recycled and used in the new “ninja” area at the track; and 3) laying sod (bought by the PTO) in this play area leaving a grassy area for students to run around and play on. There are also 8 replacements seats for the swing set on the track ordered and the county has agreed to install them.


Cubby is getting another bedtime story tonight! Our own Officer Gabe is reading to Cubby!!
