School News

Dress for the Weather

We go out to recess even in the rain.  Please be sure that your student dresses for the weather. It's important that students have coats and shoes that will keep them warm and dry even in heavy rain. Please make sure that all clothing items are labeled with your students first and last name so we can reunited lost clothing items with their owners. It would also be helpful for students to have a change of clothes in their backpacks, in case they get uncomfortably wet while playing at recess. 

Attendance Protocols

Please always call our attendance line at 253-530-4907 to let us know when you student will be absent or tardy. If you leave a message please let us know who's calling, the student's name, teacher and reason for absence. We appreciate your help your help with this.
