Great Opening

It has been a wonderful school opening with so many smiles and hugs!  Students are settling into new routines and making new friends!  We are excited about the year ahead.

Curriculum Nights

Be sure to see the linked invitations for the upcoming curriculum nights! We look forward to seeing you and telling you about the exciting year ahead for your children.  Please remember this is a parent evening and the Girl Scouts will be providing babysitting for $5.00/child.  

School Dismissal Manager

PLEASE BE SURE TO BE USING SCHOOL DISMISSAL MANAGER TO REPORT ABSENCES AND TRANSPORTATION CHANGES!  We are excited to continue the use of School Dismissal Manager, our electronic dismissal management system. This web-based program allows you, the parent, to schedule and update your child(ren)’s dismissal plans, as well as report absences,  late arrivals, and early dismissals at the click of a button on your mobile device or laptop computer.  On Wednesday, August 28th we sent out the Welcome Letter and Parent Credentials for School Dismissal Manager. Please click on the link below for more information about School Dismissal Manager.  Please let the office know if you did not receive the welcome letter or need to make a change to your child's default dismissal.

Picture Day

Please save the date - October 16th!  More information to come from the PTO.

PQ and Summer Reading

With many weeks of summer left, we hope you will continue to encourage your children to read!  Be sure to have your child complete the summer reading bingo board and bring it to his/her teacher during the first few days of school.  Here is the link for those forms:  PQ Summer Reading Bingo Board
