Student yearbooks are now on sale for $20.  The price has changed.  This year we are giving our students a hardback yearbook that can be customized with pictures of your own.   By that we mean if you have taken pictures outside of school for sports teams, dance, karate or anything you would like to showcase you can actually do it for an extra $5.00.   
Below is the link to our online pay page.

You can also advertise your business or personal sales in our yearbook.  There are different sizes available the smallest being the size of a business card $10.00 to the size of a whole page, $80.00.  If you want to take advantage but maybe need help.  Please see Ms. Jones.     

This link will take you to orders for the yearbook, customization or advertisement.   There is also a flyer attached that you can download to help you decide or walk you through the steps if needed.  Thank you.

School Supply Update

posted Jul 24, 2016, 1:38 PM by Sonji Hill   [ updated Jul 24, 2016, 1:39 PM ]

This year for technology and related assignments students 2nd-5th need to purchase a Usb drive.  You can buy them from almost anywhere like the Dollar store, Walmart, Office Max, Office Depot, Staples, Kmart, Target just to name a few examples.   The Usb drive needs to have at least 2 gigs of memory, but if you would like to buy one with more memory that is fine.   These are going to be used at school and stored in a safe area for safe keeping and easily retrievable to students when needed.

Thank You,
Miss Jones
