Goodbye vacation!

Hello to school!


Hello new class!

Goodbye old pool!


Vacation time is over,

School time is here,


Now we welcome

A new school year!




Summer's Here
Summer's here!
Another year of school is at an end.
We've learned a lot and grown a lot
and made a lot of friends.
We'll say goodbye,
now summer's here,
it's time for us to part.
But we'll remember all our friends
and keep them in our hearts.

Summer work can be found below. Have a wonderful summer and stay healthy!

June 14th is Flag Day

We celebrate this holiday because America gained its independence on July 4th, 1776. So, what is the significance of June 14th? Well, this was the day that Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes back in 1777. This means that they chose the red, white and blue flag to be the official flag of America.  Here are some Flag Day activities for you to complete.
