Attention Parents of children in PreK-3rd grade.  Did you know that the simple act of reading with your child can help them reach their potential and find success in school and in life?  Just 20 minutes a day can make a huge difference!  Please find time to read with your child--not as part of their homework, but for fun

  • Principal Hugh Wallace and a group of 6th graders spent some time on Monday, September 15th video conferencing with some high school students in Alaska.  The students had been studying the Civil Rights movement and wanted to ask questions about some of the events.  As someone who lived in Birmingham during the church bombing (the 51st anniversary of which was September 15th) and personally knew Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mr. Wallace was an excellent source of information for the students.
