K-4 Student Handbook

Principals’ Message

Dear Parents and Students,

We want to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. We look forward to working together with you this year to make it an exciting and rewarding experience. Our goal is that every student will grow and achieve success in all areas. It is important that we are focused on growing the whole child by providing multiple learning opportunities. We are able to offer maker spaces, art, music, technology, health, library and guidance classes in addition to academics and physical education. Students are able to demonstrate what they have learned at student-led conferences. 

We encourage you to follow what’s happening at your child’s school by visiting their Facebook, Twitter, or school website. If we can be of any assistance to you this year, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Let’s make it a GREAT year! Go Big O !!
