Fine Arts Day is THIS FRIDAY, March 3!
  • All students will need a sack lunch on Friday. The entire school will eat lunch in their classrooms.
  • We encourage everyone to come look around “Neverland” – out front and inside the school – on Fine Arts Day before the 8 a.m. bell rings. At 8 a.m., students need to be in their classrooms.
  • The outdoor decor will begin at the beginning of the carpool lane and end after the porch awning so be sure to come that direction to see it!
  • For the safety of the students, only pre-registered volunteers may be in the building after 8 a.m. Parents, visitors and younger/older siblings are not allowed to shadow their student or stop in to see them during the day.
