Last Week in February

Reminder from student council – During the month of February they will be collecting change to donate to St. Jude Hospital.  St. Jude is a non-profit organization that does not charge their families who can’t afford treatment.  This will be the last week they will collecting change.  We thank you in advance for your  support.  


I would like to thank the following 3rd graders for helping us celebrate Black History Month by sharing information on morning announcements.  This past week we celebrated Motown music.  

Maggie Pazderak – Diana Ross
Bennett Crookston – Stevie Wonder
Elsa Harder – Martha Reeves
Smokey Robinson – Mason McClure

This week will be celebrating Hip-Hop.
