Weekly News


Mrs. Ericson and Mr. Ledwein     

          Our Outdoor Education Day has been rescheduled for Wednesday, September 26th.  We will leave school at 9:30 and return around 1:50.  All students will need a sack lunch and beverages (rain or shine).  Please dress for the weather – long pants are recommended.  No sandals or flip flops.  No cell phones or other electronics are allowed.

          Your child’s ID card is in his/her Friday Folder.  This card will get your child free admission to Trojan sport activities.

           On Friday, September 28th, there is a lunch schedule change due to the Homecoming Parade.  Fifth graders will have lunch/recess from 11:20 - 11:50.  The parade starts at 1:00 pm.  We still plan to have full band/choir in the afternoon after the parade.

          The Physical Education teachers are participating in “Bring Your Parent to PE”.  If you would like to join your child for his/her physical education class, please come from 2:55 – 3:40 on Monday, September 24th (Ericson’s class) or Wednesday, September 26th (Ledwein’s class). 

          We are working on a “Surprise” project which is optional for the students.  If your child wants to complete the project, the cost is $6 per project.  They may complete more than one, but must pay for each project.  Please send cash only.  Money is due by September 28th.

            Mrs. Spindler, the music teacher, sent out a message via Infinite Campus.  If you have a child in band, please make sure you received the email (check your junk mail).  If you did not receive the email, the information can be found here:
