Good Day, 

It’s been  such a great week of community spirit and support, despite our restrictions. We were thrilled to see so many of you at the Book Fair and the 3 on 3 basketball game this week.  It reminded us of how lucky we are to have such a strong, supportive and fun community!  It almost seemed like the good old days. We want to thank the many volunteers that helped make these events possible.

We are still securing teaching positions for next year.  There are internal movements from within the school and also some positions that have been filled from outside candidates and a few remaining open teaching positions.  Please look for an update in the next few weeks once we get the majority of the remaining teaching vacancies secured.  Please help us to squelch all the rumors that seem to be floating around and be patient as we finalize our teaching staff for the 21/22 school year.

We are moving into the home stretch now; only two more weeks remaining of the school year. It will continue to be a busy time, yet still filled with learning and fun. Let’s end our year strong with full attendance and engagement. 

Have a fun-filled weekend. We will see you on Monday, 

Trich, Erik and Katheryn

2021 Book it Bobcats Summer Reading Program

Book It Bobcats, Bill Roberts’ annual summer reading program is back for a 5th year! We are so excited to motivate students to read and to raise money for our amazing school. All students can participate and the more you read, the more prizes you can earn! REGISTER YOUR STUDENTS ONLINE HERE. Students in ECE-2nd grade will get a poster to take home next week and all virtual students and students in Grades 3-7 can pick up a poster at the front desk or PRINT THIS ONE. For details and prize information VISIT THE WEBSITE.


The yearbook committee worked hard to produce an amazing memory book of this unprecedented school year – but must address the blurry aerial image of the school on the front pages. Unfortunately the printing of the image at the front of the yearbook was subpar and in NO WAY represents the precise work of Double Down Drones. We urge you to visit THEIR WEBSITE to see the quality of their work!

School Supplies for Next Year

The classroom supply lists for the 2021-2022 school year are now posted on We encourage everyone to purchase this way. MySchoolBucks is also used for lunch credits and some class field trips. You will need to know your students’ ID.

For any questions, please contact June Jose –
