Annual Fund

The Annual Fund provides funding to support student achievement and to sustain the school’s mission of academic excellence. This is a great option for those who would rather not participate in the event-based fundraisers throughout the year but would still like to support the school. Spread the word to out of town family and friends. Click here for the Annual Fund Form with donation information and FAQ’s. 

Common Core Standards

New English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math content standards called the “Common Core” are coming that will change what your child learns and how they learn it. Click here for more info. You can also attend a workshop to learn more.

Accelerated Reader Program

We hope that our new Accelerated Reader Program for second-sixth grades is encouraging your child to become even more of a voracious reader.  We have sent home information for parents that will help clarify the program, and provide guidance for accessing books at your child’s reading level as determined by the diagnostic test from Accelerated Reader.
