Welcome Back to School!

Summary: The first day of school is Sept. 7 for grades 1st-5th and Sept. 12 for Kindergarten. Read about School Supplies and other Important Information here.

The first day of school is Sept. 7 for grades 1 to 5 and Sept. 12 for Kindergarten. As you prepare your child for the transition back to school, this is a great time to practice school-year bedtimes, wake-up times and talk about what it’s like to get back into the routine. It is ideal to shop for a backpack, lunchbox, and reusable water bottle. Please label all items clearly with the child’s first and last names. All outerwear (coats, sweatshirts, sweaters, gloves, hats, anything to be worn on the playground) should be clearly labeled for safe return. We donate weekly any items left behind after storing them on the first floor near the Scottie Playground.

School Supplies
We have been busy purchasing supplies, sorting, and delivering to classrooms this summer. Rather than providing a list for family shopping, we purchase for our students altogether. To access SchoolPay for the $65 supply fee for 2022-2023, please log in to your Source account.
