Reminder: Doors do not open until 7:45am and no student is supervised until that time. It is not healthy for students to stand out in the weather prior to 7:45am so do not drop students off or let them walk to school prior to 7:45. This is still 45 minutes before the school day starts.

Community Happenings:

Meet Addy Hughes

Addy Hughes wanted to help her school so she applied to be on the Fifth Grade Leadership Team.addy profile

“You go around and pick up trash, go to meetings to collect pop tabs, and help out other places also,” she said.

She likes being involved in the team’s recycling project, delivering orange notes from the office to teachers and “is looking forward to reading to kindergartners.”

Another activity, the pop tab collection for Ronald McDonald House is important “because you get to help other people who don’t really have anywhere to stay when their kids are sick,” she said.

In school, Addy said, “I like doing math – all kinds of math - and sometimes reading.”

Outside of school, she’s involved in sports.

“I do three: basketball, volleyball and softball.”

She also takes dance and has another interest.

“I like to write stories for fun.”
