Does Your Child Walk or Bike to School?
If you would like for your child to walk/bike to and from school, make sure you complete a permission slip at the front office. Parents need to complete one every school year.
Lunch served in the cafeteria is not included in the school tuition. Your child can have lunch from the cafeteria at an additional charge that will be added to your school bill provided your account is up to date.
The fees are...
Preschool & Kindergarten: $3.50 each
1st to 6th: $4.25 each
7th & 9th Grade: $4.75 each
Kids who forget their lunch will get hot lunch from the cafeteria and the charge will be added to your account.
If your child is going to another student’s house after school, please make sure that the office has a written note giving them permission to do so or give us a call.
This also applies if your child is going to a birthday party with another student right after school and if your child is carpooling with another parent to an away game.
All play dates must be arranged at home and not during school or after school.

Oregon Battle of the Books Coaches Needed!
Would you like to coach an Oregon Battle of the Books team this year?
Coaches facilitate the reading and discussion of books from the official O.B.O.B. list. Teams typically meet twice a month to plan strategy and discuss books. Meetings can be held before, during, or after school depending upon the needs of the team.
Students do not need to read every book on the list to participate. Part of the strategy of the battle is deciding which team members will read which books! O.B.O.B. Coaches can expect to spend about 5 hours a month reading and working with their team.
Please email email@example.com with questions. You can keep up with us on the Library page too!
