Shrihan, a 7th grade student, is collecting broken, unused crayons that usually get tossed in trash. He has teamed up with a nonprofit organization where these crayons will be recycled, and then distributed to various Children's hospitals across the USA. Please help him in this endeavor by contributing crayons you no longer use in the collection boxes labeled "My Crayons initiative" that are placed at the front and back entrance of the school. The collection bins will be available until the end of April.


Beginning Monday, April 4, we will supervise basketball in the small gym between 7:50 and 8:20 AM.  This “Open Gym” will be available to 5th and 6th graders on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 7th and 8th graders on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Anyone interested in participating must enter the school via the front entrance.  Students will not be permitted to walk from the back of the school to the small gym before school.  Any instances of misbehavior will be instantly ineligible to participate in “open gym.”
