Black History Month:

Elementary is honoring Black History Month by reading picture books about Civil Rights Leaders and studying the character and accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr.

Mrs. Goetz’s Class: We’ve finished “The Magician’s Elephant” and are spending this week finishing our elephant research reports, our text analysis of the book, and our dioramas. IF you have a shoebox or other like sized box, please send it in with your child to school ASAP. If you have more than one that you can part with, we would appreciate having extras!

Walk-a-Thon!!! Hey Everyone! It’s that time of the year again where our Annual Walk-a-Thon (WAT) is just around the corner! One of the fun things that is included with our WAT are the raffle tickets that each student earns with the pledges they receive. For every $25.00 they are pledged, they earn a raffle ticket.

Here is where we need help! We highly rely on donations from our school and city community as raffle prizes. The WAT team is looking for various items to give away in our raffle. In the past we have given away Chromebooks and Ipads, fitbit watches, gift cards to places like Target and Amazon, Loungefly Disney backpacks, Starbucks merch and more! We are asking for a $$ amount to purchase raffle gifts OR the donation of actual items. Please contact Jes at

We are looking forward to this year’s WAT and appreciate all of you and anything you can offer!
