School Uniforms

We encourage families to review the updated school uniform policy before purchasing school clothes this summer.  It is part of the School Handbook posted on the website.

Calculator Toss


At the school picnic in May, Mrs. Guarino organized a calculator toss for the Math Club. (The calculators were broken and unusable!) Dylan's :Spudnik" went an amazing 144 feet! The "USS Joe" flung by Joe C. was just under that. Students had to measure distance in both feet and meters. Congratulations!
