Many people braved the stormy clouds to see some of the most creative art pieces made by their children. Handpainted tiles, to chalk sketches, to wire sculptures, to an Andy Warhol installation. Thank you to all who worked to make this such a beautiful success for the school. And most of all thank you to the students and teachers who developed the amazing art for the show.

School attendance is vital to stuents' achievement. Students who develop patterns of good attendance are much more likely to be successful both academically and socially. Attendance Matters!
When students attend school they get better grades, and score better on standardized test. It is our responsibility to teach students the importance of attendance now so they are prepared for the future. Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that their children attend school daily. When parents are at work, students should be safe at school.
Please visit the school’s computer lab and work with our volunteer Homework Helpers every Wednesday from 2:45 to 3:45 pm. We have amazing community volunteers from the Northland Village Church who donate their time to assist our students with homework as well as provide them access to the Computer Lab.
