Wow! Our class is having a great time learning all about the virtues of a true hero! Make sure to check in with your student today to see what they’ve been learning through Castle Quest!
I wanted to give you an update on our class’s progress! Our class has reached $9 on our Pledge O Meter. We think we can make it even further to help our school!
This weekend we are issuing a special challenge! Your child can earn a bonus prize simply by getting a qualifying pledge this weekend only. Check out for details!
And if you’re looking for the easiest way to ask for a pledge, just upload a photo of your student to to create a personalized Student Star video. This fun, hilarious video starring your child can be shared by email or social media to connect with sponsors and ask for a pledge.
Thank you again for helping our class!
P.S. - If you haven’t registered your child on, use our school registration code: 349299

Student Headphones/Earbuds

Parents, please check with your child about headphones. Headphones are on the school supply list and are a mandatory daily use item. Many students began the year with headphones, but have since become lost or damaged. Please make sure to replace this item as necessary. Dollar Tree has earbuds for $1. Thank you for your support!

Remember to bring a healthy snack to school!

We do not eat lunch until 1 pm, but will have snack at 9:45. Snacks MUST be healthy. Please do not bring anything that requires spoons or forks.
