Ask the teacher if you need help with username or passwords.

First Grade 20 points

Second Graders 40 points

Third Graders 60 points

Fourth Graders 80 points

Fifth Graders 100 points


Morning Drop-Offs: SLOW DOWN for SAFETY! Please pull through the driveway and let Coach Cummings (P.E. Teacher) open the doors to let your child out instead of parking in a spot (Unless you have a reason to park, sign in at the office, and enter the school). It is difficult to see all students when we have cars coming through the driveway and students coming out of parked cars at the same time. We want all students to cross the school driveway safely, and this will help us be sure they can do so. If you do have to come in, please get out and walk your child across the driveway INSIDE OF THE CROSSWALK instead of sending them alone OR WALKING RIGHT IN FRONT OF CARS in the morning. We want all students to arrive safely and need your cooperation. Thank you.


Last call for Christmas help! Call Ms. Kelli, our school counselor, for an application 304-562-9351
