    6th Grade  Our sixth grade science classes are starting to plan their yearly field trips.  Our science teachers are currently recruiting chaperones and drivers.  If you are interested in supporting our science department please contact your child’s teacher. 

    Drop Off  Just a reminder that we don’t  open our doors to the patio at 745 and the building does not open until 8.   We have been noticing students arriving earlier and earlier. We have already had students sneaking in and breaking the rules while inside the building. We do not allow students in the building due to safety concerns and lack of supervision.  Thank you for your support.

    7th Grade  Our seventh grade teachers are starting to plan their yearly field trip.  Our teachers are currently recruiting chaperones.  If you are interested in supporting this field trip please contact your child’s teacher.

    Construction  More bond work has begun at our school site.  They are starting to replace our heating system and install AC throughout the school.  Thank you all for your vote on Measure J.
