Thanks to all who attended the Parent Information Night last night! It was great to see all of our parents gather together for Mrs. Wentling's presentation and to visit with their student(s) homeroom teacher(s)! And thanks to all who have downloaded our new app! It is quickly becoming a valuable resource for communication for us and we do not want you to miss out on it. So, if you haven't downloaded it, please do so, you won't regret it! If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the app, please do not hesitate to reach out to us and ask, we are happy to help!
We are updating our "STREAM" carts which we stock with consumable items for the students to use for various STREAM activities throughout the year! Have any of these extra items laying around the house, or needing to purge some of these? We would LOVE to get some more of the following for our carts... buttons milk jug/pop bottle caps cereal boxes paper towel cardboard rolls beads corks chenille stems/pipe cleaners pom poms googly eyes misc. game pieces (throwing away an old game?) balloons yarn construction paper You do NOT need to go buy brand new items, anything around the house is GREAT! While cleaning out old toy rooms, we would gladly take any extra legos, k'nex or building toys of any kind, as well! All items can be sent with your child in a bag and dropped off at the SCHOOL LIBRARY!! Got any questions? Contact Mrs. Natalie Brown, librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org

The students were joined by Fr. Nick this morning to celebrate our first mass of the year. It was a beautiful site to see everyone back together again as a whole.
A very special "Thank You" goes out to Mrs. Schrant's nephew, Thomas Giebler, a Graphics Art Major at FHSU, for sharing his time and talent with us! He created this amazing chalk art image that welcomed the faculty, staff, parents and students on the first day!
