Taco Tuesday has been moved to Taco Wednesday. Tacos will be sold out of the high school plaza on Wednesday October 10th. Thanks to High School PFO for their support with this!

We are excited to announce that our school will be working in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – an awesome new program devised to turn used markers into energy!  
The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!
Please help support our efforts by dropping off any used markers you may have around your classroom or house. (Please note: They will accept all brands of plastic markers, not just Crayola markers.  That includes dry erase markers and highlighters!) A special thank you to Mrs. Grant for getting our school set up with this program!
