peace club.pngWorkshop for Parents!

Come meet Ms. Jules, our Psychiatric Social Worker. Ms. Jules has been creatively and enthusiastically working with our students this year. Our students rave about the educational and fun activities Ms. Jules provides during our lunchtime Peace Club topics often include relaxation skills, cultural awareness and gratitude. In the classroom Ms. Jules has been working with our 3rd grade and kinder students to develop important leadership skills like communication, goal setting and problem solving. These are just a few examples of the work Ms. Jules has been doing at our school this year. Please stop by at 8:30 am on Friday, February 12th to learn more about Ms. Jules all of the awesome services she is providing for your students!

fitness kids.jpgFalcon Fitness Week

During the week of February 8th - 12th our students will participate in a week long Jump for Heart celebration. The Jump for Heart event encourages cooperative activity and provides a fun way to support physical and health education. During the week, students will participate in a variety of "heart pumping" activities such as jump roping, relay racing, dancing, and hula hooping. We ask that you please send your child to school with appropriate exercise shoes for the week.

*Parents are invited to come watch and cheer on the students at the main event that takes place Friday, February 12th at 1:30 pm.

Emergency Cards

Twice a year emergency cards are sent home with each student to ensure that the school office has current and operating phone numbers where parents can be reached during school hours when the need arises. Prompt return of form, completed and signed on both sides, will be appreciated.


Keep in mind only people designated as an "Emergency Contact" on the card will be allowed to pick-up the student. Anyone picking up a student prior to dismissal or through the main office must show current identification.

Lost and Found

by June 10th.

Please Call Before Noon

Teachers check their mailbox during their lunchtime and this will ensure that the message gets delivered timely and also minimizes classroom interruptions. Thanks!
