Mrs. Rokosz’s fourth grade homeroom class is the big winner of the canned food drive!  They did an amazing job and get to celebrate with a free dress day tomorrow!  Way to go guys!  Please comply with dress code–no hats, etc., torn or frayed jeans, etc.


Please don’t forget that this year’s hoodies, sweatshirts, zip-ups, and long sleeve spirit shirt orders are on sale now.  We have two ways to order, 1st you can print this form and send it with the money to school with your student or you can now purchase online through  We will extend the deadline for ordering these items until Wednesday 12-9-20.  Remember that we do not place the actual order until we close the sale.  It takes 2-3 weeks for the screen printing company to process and make our order, so you will receive your items after Winter Break.


The MS/HS Graphic Design students are doing a service project designing coloring books for the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth.  They partnered with Mrs. Lawrence’s Creative Writing class to write a story to go along with our coloring book. Our coloring book features Echo the eagle who travels around the world seeing new landmarks in every country from A to Z.

Please consider donating new crayons, thin markers, or colored pencils to be delivered with our coloring books to the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. We will have a box by the A & D buildings front offices if you would like to donate.  The last day to donate will be December 17th. We appreciate your generosity.

Have a great Sunday!
