 Visitor's must sign in at the office. A visitor’s pass will be issued. The volunteers working with students must be district fingerprinted and cleared to volunteer. Visitors need to return to the office to sign out.
In order to eliminate unnecessary classroom interruptions, we request that parents and other visitors leave messages, forgotten lunches, books, etc., in the office for their child. In this way, the teacher is given the article or message at his/her break time, rather than interrupting students precious learning time. We appreciate your cooperation.

 More information here on volunteer requirements. 

Principal's Message

Dear Bulldog Families

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a restful and fun-filled break with loved ones and are ready for a fantastic 2019! We are half way through the year which means your students have learned a ton already! We love seeing them learn and grow and can’t wait to watch them continue to flourish in the second half of the year. Please continue to ask them daily what their favorite part of the school day was, what they did with friends, about any problems they solved or how they helped others, and be sure to be reading nightly with them.


Ms. DeMartini
