Wishtree Mural

When you visit for Arts Night, be sure to check out the beautiful mural in our front hallway. The OSOB Committee gave each class a paper with inspiration to paint a section of the Wishtree. The team put all the finished pieces together to create this mural. There are so many details with clues and characters from the book!

Don't forget to keep up with your reading and optional activities. You can find read alouds on our school website under the activities tab.

GT Program Parent Recommendations

The parent recommendation window for students CURRENTLY in Grades 3-5 will open on April 1 and close on April 12. If you are interested in recommending your current grade 3-5 student for the gifted and talented program, please fill out the parent form HERE for the English version and HERE for the Spanish version. Students currently in the program DO NOT need to reapply or be recommended. Students CURRENTLY in second grade will participate in a grade-wide screening at the beginning of their third-grade year. More information on this process will be sent in the fall. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Mendez, the Gifted & Talented teacher, at or through Parent Square, Jennifer Mendez.
