Message from Principal Thompson

Stallion Families,

This has been a great week of learning for all of our students!  Our teachers are going above and beyond, collaborating and planning strategically to ensure high quality instruction for every one of our stallions. Each week I continue to be in awe of their commitment to excellence!

Did you forget to put your kids class number on things? Lost and found is overflowing! If you are missing something, please have your child go look. Or go up to the office and tell them you need to look through lost and found. In two weeks, everything will be cleared out to be donated.


Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate the season, especially the PTA committee and ALL the day-of volunteers who made the event so fun for our kids! 

The Fall Festival Committee also wanted to give a HUGE "Thank You" to all of our sponsors!  With their support, we were able to have an incredible event that hosted 1,500 attendees and raised $55,000 to support our school! Such a fun day to enjoy with our entire community, we look forward to next year's Fall Fest!

Thanks to our 3rd Grade Trash Bashers!

These cute volunteers cleaned up our campus the day after Fall Fest- thanks so much for helping to keep our school beautiful!
