If you are planning on buying a 2nd semester lunch ticket for your child, please purchase it before we leave for Christmas break. This will ensure that your child will have a lunch ticket the first day we are back. K-4th is $300 and 5th- 8th is $320.

HOLIDAY SCRIP AVAILABLE NOW!

Please stop by the Scrip Room and check out our gift cards for the holidays. The Starbucks, Target, and Wal-Mart lower denomination cards are now in stock. Are you doing some extra grocery shopping for the upcoming holidays? Now is the time to buy our grocery gift cards. We also have Honey Baked Ham scrip. Scrip always makes a great gift and we have plenty of scrip gift giving ideas. Stop by our Scrip Room in the morning or drop off your order with a payment in the School Office. This is a great opportunity to buy gifts, take care of household needs, and reduce your Scrip obligation at the same time!
