School Supply Kits

2022-2023 School Supply Kits are now ready for ordering!  Please go to schooltoolbox.com to order your school supply kits and they will be delivered to your home shortly.  See attached flyer for additional information.  If you have any questions, please reach out to kirstenclancy@yahoo.com. 


Field Day this year will be held on June 3rd this year.  The morning session will be grades 3-6, and the afternoon session will be grades K-2. We are looking for volunteers to run stations (volunteers don’t need to come up with the activities, just show up to help!).  We are limited in numbers, so we will draw names if there is too many volunteers.  We apologize in advance if your name doesn’t come out of the the hat!  Also, younger siblings are not allowed to volunteer with you.  Please email me Rita Brezina at erbrezina@gmail.com if you would like to put your name in the hat for one of the sessions, including the grades of your kids so I can put you in the right place.  Thanks!!


While the discount time period has ended, you can still order a yearbook for this school year.  The deadline for personalized pages has passed as well, but you can order a general yearbook.  Cllick on the attachment below for more informationtreering-2-4Download
