Halloween Dress-up: This Friday students are allowed to dress-up for Halloween if they would like. In order to recognize students and keep school safe we have some regulations for costumes that students must follow. The dress code will still be enforced that day, please encourage students to dress appropriately for school. We also ask that no students crossdress, wear costume masks, face paint, or have excessive blood. Any student wearing face paint will be required to wash it off before attending class. Any fake or toy weapons including anything that looks like a weapon is not allowed.

On the 29th at 2:00 PM we will do a drawing from those who have submitted them and you can win a special prize worth lots of money (relatively)!

School Lunch: Here is the link to our lunch menu. Take a look to see what is being served at our school. Thank you students for following the rules in the lunchroom and cleaning up after yourselves!
