Principal Melinda Crook wants to thank the 150 or so parents and students who came to their "Back-to-School Bash" Thursday night the 1st. She and the staff are very excited about the coming year.
Don't forget those big yellow school buses. We bus drivers do our best to keep each student rider safe but we need your help. Please when you see the yellow caution lights on, prepare to stop and by all means, DO NOT PASS when the red lights are flashing and the stop arm is out. This means even on the school grounds. We never know when a student will dart out the door and cross the road.
