You are asked to sign and return several  important agreement forms that you will find in your package (purple forms).  As well as, the Technology Agreement to allow your children to use technology to enhance their learning, confirmation of subscription to our School Blog for all further communication, and the Cash Online program for convenient payment options. 

Please also consider volunteering your time to benefit our school and returning the volunteer list and School Council form.

Most importantly, we ask that you carefully look over your child’s Personal Student Verification forms when they come home with emergency phone numbers which must be corrected, signed and returned to the school to ensure that we have  accurate emergency information. 

Please return these forms as soon as possible or by September 15th. Thank you for your cooperation.
