Project Cornerstone

We are looking for parents who are interested in being an ABC Reader this year.

Our district is partnering with YMCA Project Cornerstone.  This year our school would like to get back to having parent readers read the monthly Project Cornerstone ABC books and facilitate the classroom activity which goes along with each book title.  This can be done virtually via Zoom or in person.  If you are interested in being a reader for your child's classroom, please contact your child's teacher.  


Here is some more information about Project  Cornerstone.

Gratitude Project

Our Student Council is promoting a reflection on gratitude activity

Our 4th and 5th grade Student Council members are visiting each classroom to talk with all our students about gratitude.  Every student will be tracing their hand, then they will write five things they are thankful for on the fingers.  Student Council members will help younger students trace their hands and write their thoughts.  Students will then post their cut out handprints on a schoolwide poster in our main hallway.

NED's Mindset Mission Assembly

On December 1st our students will participate in NED's Mindset Mission assembly.

NED's Mindset Mission is a character education program that centers around three important messages that have lifelong relevance: Never give up, Encourage others and Do your best. During the assembly, students will learn about the importance of these three life skills while also enjoying storytelling, magic, humor and yo-yo tricks. We recommend linking the underlined text (shown above) to our website,
