Coyote Dash Is Coming! 

The Coyote Dash will be held Friday, September 28.   Our annual fundraiser is an opportunity for kids to build school spirit while getting some exercise with their friends. Money raised will be used directly to purchase new books for the media center or to update classroom libraries.   We are moving to an electronic donation system which will allow you to easily include friends and family in supporting our school. Students will bring a letter home with  details on the fundraising website, at


Please join us for the fun and cheer on your child! The schedule for grades is as follows:

  • 9:00-9:20 1st grade

New School Year, New and Improved Meals Program!

Just as our school is working to make sure students receive the best education possible, our district's Culinary Express program is making changes to provide students and staff with healthy and tasty nutritional options to better support learning. Changes, which were made in response to parent feedback last spring and will not affect the price of school meals, include:

  • Reducing artificial colors, high fructose corn syrup, artificial preservatives and bleached flour.
  • Serving more whole grains and less sugar. This includes reducing the frequency of when we offer chocolate milk and juice.
  • Partnering with a local food hub to emphasize local foods and increase student and parent education about nutrition in fun ways.

Please watch for more information from Culinary Express about these exciting changes and encourage your students to try the new, fun and healthy foods being offered this school year.

Tomorrow  September 14 we will be celebrating International Dot Day!   We truly believe that every student has something to contribute, no matter how big or small, and we want our kids to always know that. Join us by encouraging your child to show their creativity by wearing all things "dotty"!
