As part of our upcoming CSI Review, we must conduct a parent survey.  Attached to this weekly note is the parent survey we are asking each parent in the house to fill out and return to school.  If these could be returned to school before the end of February that would be great.  Thanks for taking the time to do this!



BOXTOPS are due Wednesday, FEBRUARY 21.  Please get them turned in as soon as possible (trimmed and in groups of 50 is helpful).

Do not fax or call orders to my house – money needs to accompany orders or they will not be processed. Please try to remind your child to bring the order to their teacher or the office right away when they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.


Reminder for Jr. High Students…

Jr High Students need to keep all subjects above  a “D” in order to participate in extracurricular activities.  It’s the time of the year that we can become a little fatigued with school work and let our grades slip. 

Thanks, Mr. Schoonhoven
