April 9, 2020

We, and most of the nation, have had to adopt a remote learning platform as schools have closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

January 23, 2020

Ask, imagine, plan, create and improve! These are the problem-solving steps of the Engineering Design Process that students learn to follow.

Honoring our Veterans

November 7, 2019

Nearly 100 years ago, President Woodrow Wilson declared November 11 as Armistice (truce) Day.

End-of-Year Celebrations

June 6, 2019

Where has the time gone? The cool, damp weather may have something to do with my sense of disbelief – it doesn’t seem possible that the end of the school year will be upon us next week. Our community is bursting with energy and excitement as we prepare for the many end-of-year celebrations! Field trips, […]
