Hello Terrapin Families,

  • No Parking in the School Parking Lot - Staff Only

We ask that if you choose to celebrate your child’s  birthday at school, please do so in a healthy way. Please do not bring food to school, but you can:  
  • Have your child bring their favorite book to share and the  teacher or child will read it to the class. 
  • Donate a book, ball,  jump rope (new or used) to the classroom for recess. 
  • Choose a favorite song or musical piece to sing or play for the class. 
  • Bring a colorful pencil, sticker, eraser, or simple goodie bags for the entire  class with safe items (no  balloons, or food items, etc.). 
  • Only bring party invitations if every student in the class is invited.
