We ask parents for donations to the school to cover Spanish classes, their PTA membership and much more. In this way, we don’t have to raise money by selling gift wrap and types of sales.

Our parent education committee schedules several seminars throughout the year about our campus and things that affect your child. The committee advertises upcoming events in the Thursday newsletter and on our website. Additionally, the staff is available to answer your questions.

My child talks a lot about WOW time. What is it?
We encourage our students to walk around the track every day. The laps that they walk during the year are counted toward their Marathon Kids goals, for which the physical education teacher Ms. Brauss signs every child at our school up.
