We are excited to announce that in addition to the soda machine we now also have a snack machine with several healthy snack options. These vending machines are a privilege for MS/HS students but are off limits for ECE/ES unless they are accompanied by a parent. Parents may accompany a child at drop off or pick up if they would like to allow them to purchase something from the vending machines.
Now is the time to purchase your yearbook! The price goes up soon. Milestone ads are on sale now! This is such a great way to congratulate a student on a wonderful school year, a sport achievement, or a play debut! Purchasing an ad is a wonderful way every Senior parent can send out students with encouragement as they head off to their next season of life. Use the link to purchase yearbooks and milestone ads.
