Our School Is Proud To Offer

Accelerated Reading Program
Computer generated tests check reading comprehension on the adopted reading series and other literature. We ask students to read every night. When students reach their reading goal, we have a lunch time celebration. The students receive new goals every 6 weeks.

Parents Are Our Partners

Three times a year the kindergarten program sponsors family event nights. Dinner and enrichment activities are included in these events.

Parent Club
Parents meet monthly to discuss parent issues and fundraising activities, provides funding for school-wide assemblies, library books, playground equipment.
