My School Bucks Reminder
Just a quick reminder that as we approach the end of the school year, please keep an eye on your student's "My School Bucks" cafeteria account.  It is better to allow these accounts to dwindle than to keep applying money to them; however, meal charges cannot be allowed either.   Any money not used by the last day of school will sit in the account until the next school year.  A refund cannot be issued through the system.
Medication Reminder
Nurse Harper wants to remind parents that any medication in the Nurse's Office must be picked up in person by the last day of school.  Any medication not picked up will be disposed of appropriately.  Medications cannot be sent home on the bus.

The PTO is now offering pre-packaged school supply orders for the 2015-2016 school year for all grade levels. Please see the attached flyer for details on how to place your order. Orders can be made from now until June 12th.
