Up at Lunch Day is Tuesday, October 28 during ALL lunch
How does Mix-It Up Day Work? Students will be given a number when entering the cafeteria and should sit at that designated lunch table. At each table, there will be instructions for games to play during lunch. Students are encouraged to Mix-It Up and make new friends!

Parent Teacher Conferences on Nov. 3 and 6, 3:30-8 PM - Sign Up Here
Sign up for Parent Teacher Conferences, which will take place on Monday, November 3 and Thursday, November 6. While teachers would love the opportunity to meet with the parents of each of their students on those evenings, there are simply not enough time slots to do so. If you are unable to schedule a meeting with a teacher during these times but you would like to conference with a teacher about your child’s progress, please don’t hesitate to contact that teacher to set up a conference at another time.
