A Note From Our Principal,
Thank you all for your participation in our Kids Helping Kids initiative this summer! We are still collecting diapers, wipes or any gently used baby items to support Stanton Healthcare, a non-profit organization that hands out free baby items to families in need. Our Elementary campers will be sorting these items and helping load up all collected items on August 13th. We are grateful for the opportunity to watch our students serve others this summer and appreciate the role you all had in this.
We still have 3 more weeks of summer camp, but our teachers are excited to start preparing our classrooms for the new school year. Please remember that our school will be closed the week of August 26- September 2nd for teacher in-service as well as the Labor Day holiday.
