District Calendar PDF Available

A .pdf of the 2015-16 school calendar is available here... A print version will be sent home with students on the first day of school. The district redesigned the calendar in an effort to make it more helpful for parents. Answers to common parent questions are included as well as more student photos.

Student Arrival Time Changed to 8:00 a.m.

Parents please note that student arrival time will change to 8:00 a.m. for 2015-16. This change will ensure students are supervised and minimize idle time before the start of school. Please do not drop off students before 8:00 a.m. Students in K-5 will dismiss at 2:30 p.m. (instead of 2:25 p.m.). This will ensure they have adequate time for recess and lunch. If you have any questions, please contact the district office at 283-4600 ext. 14.

Thank You to Community for Coming Out to Meet and Greet

Thank you to everyone who came out to the school playground on July 23 to enjoy freeze pops with Superintendent Tom Reardon! We had a great turnout with more than 40 students, parents, faculty and staff members. Dr. Reardon plans to host similar events this summer to introduce himself to the community and listen to parents and students.

Summer Community Gardening

Community members are invited to help out in the school garden over the summer on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m. or Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. “Our kids worked hard during the school year planting and weeding,” said teacher Peter Mesh. “Now, volunteers are needed during the summer to weed and harvest. Families are welcome to take home food from the garden over the summer. We only ask that you spend a little time weeding with your children when you do.” Any extra harvest during the summer is brought to the Hope 7 Food Pantry. If you have a question, please mail Mr. Mesh.
