Please see the reminders below:

1st day school supplies:  We are so excited that this year we’ve partnered with 1st Day School Supplies.

Not when you order from 1st Day School Supplies!  They are going to save us up to 30% over shopping at big box stores like Target, Walmart and Amazon. Better yet, they are the undisputed leader in custom kitting school supplies. Providing us with only brand names you trust and respect like Ticonderoga, Crayola, Elmer’s and Clorox. So, what are you waiting for? Buy early and save!  In just a few clicks you’ll have everything you need and only the brand names you trust and respect like Ticonderoga, Crayola, Elmer’s and Clorox.

Calendar Change: Just a reminder that tomorrow, May 10, will be a half day of school and there will be no school on Thursday and Friday, May 11 and 12. This change is due to limited parking and security issues during a CIU Track event that will be held on the MR campus.  The bus will run on a half day schedule on May 10.

Senior Send Off – Our Seniors will be walking through our hallways on Wednesday, May 17, as students and teachers cheer them on along the way. Feel free to make a sign at home with your child to congratulate the Class of 2023 and make them feel extra special!


Rising 5th Grade Parent Q&A Meeting:   On Thursday, May 18th at 6:00 pm, all rising 5th grade parents are invited to attend the Parent Q&A meeting.
