HOW MANY VOLUNTEER HOURS HAVE I LOGGED? – Wondering how many volunteer hours you have recorded so far? You can run a report of your hours by following these instructions: How do I get a report of my personal volunteer hours / service record (

If you need help or have questions about logging your hours, contact Rebecca Miner at We still need lots of volunteers for Spirit Fridays, Field Day, and other various class programs and activities. Thanks for all the volunteering you do. We have great parents.

SPIRIT FRIDAYS – Due to the busyness of spring, we no longer have spirit WEEK, we have spirit FRIDAYS! See below to find the themes for each Friday and come in your crazy wear:

  • April 21- Sports Day: Wear the gear for a sport you love or a favorite team’s jersey. Please make sure all students are fully covered, even if you have to adjust the “gear” for the day.
  • April 28- Disney Day: Bust out your best princess dress, slap on some Mickey ears, or wear a Star Wars t-shirt. As long as it’s Disney, it’s legit today. Reminder that masks are not allowed as part of a school safety issue, but you could wear them on your head/forehead.
  • May 5- Dollar Dress Day: You know what they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. As regularly scheduled, this will be a dollar dress day. Bring a dollar, wear anything within the approved dollar dress standards. If you’ve already paid for the year, you’re set.
  • May 12- Celebrity Day: Come dressed as your favorite celebrity! Carry a stuffed animal in a handbag, do your hair in outrageous styles, bust our your best animal prints– the possibilities are endless. Again, please make sure that students are fully covered, even if you have to put a shirt or leggings underneath an outfit.
  • May 19- Single Color Day: Every year we have a color day, but we usually pick the color. This year, YOU pick the color. Do you own a lot of purple? Wear it all today! Are you a fan of chartreuse? Today’s your day to shine (literally). Your goal is simply to wear as much of one color as you can.

SPAIN 2018 STUDY ABROAD MEETING – We will be holding our first 2018 Spain Study Abroad Trip meeting on:
