  • Walk-a-thon

    Posted by Gary Messinger on 10/31/2016

    Many of you know we had a spirit week and walk-a-thon last week.  We had a great turnout of parents to help support the walk or cheer on the kids.  It is actually one of my favorite days of the year.  The kids ran/walked over 500 miles combined and we already met our financial goal for the PTO.  Thank you all for all your help with this event!

  • Welcome Back

    Posted by Gary Messinger on 9/7/2016

    The beginning of every year is very exciting for me.  It is an opportunity to get a fresh start and to work on the things that I want to improve upon.  I am thrilled that the students are back and they have done a fantastic job of getting back into the routines of school.  I am looking forward to a great year and wanted to thank you for all the support you show the school throughout the year.

  • The Chocolate Touch

    Posted by Gary Messinger on 5/16/2016

    There was a lot of excitement today as students entered the building.  There is a display in the lobby decorated with a lot of candy bars, a chocolate fountain, and pictures from the book we are going to read together.  I hope your kids enjoy this activity.  The staff is very excited about the opportunities the students will have during the next few weeks.

  • Camp

    Posted by Gary Messinger on 5/11/2016

    Yesterday I traveled to camp with the 5th graders.  It is really exciting to see them interact in that setting.  Kids are smiling, supporting one another, and just genuinely enjoying the opportunity to spend time learning outdoors.  I am really proud that our District give students a chance to experience this.
