Monday, Oct. 26: Teacher waiver day, No School!

We are still looking for photos of veterans for the Veterans’ day assembly. We have had only four families submit anything. Unfortunately, we were not able to save photos from last years slide show – so we really need them submitted again, and if you are new to submitting for the Veterans day assembly, a flyer was sent home with your student last week. Instructions again:

In honor of Veterans’ Day we would like to collect pictures of family members who have served, or are serving, in the United States Military. These pictures will be used in a slideshow for our school. Please send in pictures by October 30th.

The Easiest way to send in pictures is via email to, scan or use phone/camera to take a picture of the photo and email to the address that we just provided, placing VETERANS DAY PICTURE as subject line.
If you prefer to send the picture in for us to scan please make sure photo is marked with information to return. If any other questions, please email our wonderful Mrs. Halstead at or call 253.571.5525.
Please attach the following information to your picture or email.
