March is Reading Month Continues!

Continue to encourage your children to read at home this month (and always). Remember, "twenty minutes before bed to get ahead!"  Try reading with them, its great quality time!  Also, ask questions about what was just read to help with comprehension.

Variety Show Tonight

Come see all our talented students in the 2019 Spring Variety Show.  The show starts tonight at 7:00 pm in the Blanche Sims Cafeteria.
