It is not too late to purchase an ice cream card for your child. ​​ It is $10.00 and has 14 punches. If you don’t want to buy a card, your child may bring 75 cents to buy ice cream. ​​ You may send your $10.00 to your child’s homeroom teacher in an envelope marked with your child and teacher’s name (and that it is for an ice cream card) or drop it off in the school office. ​​ Only cash​​ will be accepted. ​​ You may not put ice cream or the card on your account.

The proceeds will benefit the junior and senior students going to Puerto Rico in the spring.





If you have been waiting on a certain size of P.E. clothes the order has arrived. Drop by the school office to purchase.
