FRUIT OF THE SPIRITGalatians 5:22-23 teaches us about the Fruit of the Spirit. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." The Kindergarten through 5th grade students are being recognized by their teachers for the special way they each represent the Fruit of the Spirit for the rest of the school year.

UNIFORM SWAPWe are collecting gently used uniforms this week. Please turn them in at the front office in building B during school hours. We will be accpeting them until the last day of school. Each family will receive a credit for each uniform piece turned in. These credits can be used to come back later in the summer to our Uniform Swap Shop. You don't have to make a donation to participate. All uniforms will be for sale and swap. The dates are still to be determined.
SCHOOL SUPPLIESDon't waste time this summer searching for school supplies. Orders need to be placed before May 26th and will be delivered prior to the first day of school (August 16th). Click HERE to place your order!
We have communicated this time and time again and it has to stop. Just last week a parent and staff member witnessed a child come close to being hit because parents are consistently pulling under the porte cache during carpool. THE PORTE CACHE IS NEVER A DROP ZONE! You need to wait in line for carpool or park your car if you wish to come into the building in the mornings. This rule certainly holds true with afternoon carpool. The only vehicles allowed to pull under a porte cache for afternoon carpool are the 2 who have won the Porte Cache Pick Up in Building B.
Keeping our students safe is the most important part of our day. We are making note of license plates of the offenders. Please do not put the school in the position of having to contact you in this regard. Safety first.
