Ms. Cofield sent out a special call last Friday requesting your assistance with safety coming to and from school. Here’s what she had to say: “There are many parents not following traffic safety in front of and around the school. Parents, please: Stop at all stop signs refrain from illegal u-turns, obey the speed limit, and please watch for students crossing the street. There have been three separate reports of students almost being hit on Miranda St. Please, let’s not wait for a tragedy to happen, let’s protect our children and obey all traffic laws. Thank you!”

With every $4,000 raised collectively, a part of the annual fund flower outside the office will bloom into color. Please help our flower bloom! Every donation counts, whether you can give the suggested $400 per child or any another amount. In addition to the school flower, there are also flowers posted outside each classroom measuring classroom participation. Classrooms with 100% participation at any donation level will earn prizes such as a popsicle or pizza party, extra recess, the chance to silly string Ms. Cofield, and more! Donate today and watch your classroom flowers bloom too! To find out how annual fund donations benefit your children, please click here.
