Last week, students went through a bus evacuation drill as part of Bus Safety Week.

This week, the Science Camp will be going on for those who signed up for it.

On Nov. 10, there will be a Veterans Day Assembly in the school gym from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. That evening, there will be a Domino’s fundraiser at Domino’s in Highland. The PTO will receive a percentage sales.

On Nov. 11, there is no school in recognition of Veterans Day.

PTO News

The Great American Fundraiser was a huge success. With the money made from this fundraiser, the school was able to purchase six new security cameras for greater visibility inside and out. Another set of Kindergarten reading books were purchased, which means the classes will no longer have to share one set of books. Technology pod to enhance Internet speed and new signs for the parking lot were also purchased.

Without the help of all the families that participate in the fundraisers, these items that benefit the students would not be possible in today’s economy.
