Our school is guided by our 4 PAWS: Be Polite! Be Prepared! Be Prompt! Be Productive! We are an urban, public elementary school serving approximately 360 students in grades kindergarten through grade 5. 100% of our students receive free lunch (CEP School), 20% of our students are English language learners, and even more come from dual language homes.
Celebrating the diverse cultures of our students and families is very important, and as a community school, we work to respect their traditions, and work to meet the needs of families and students before, during and after the school day.
We recently received a donation of backpacks and other school supplies to distribute to all students at our school. One thing that was missing were hand-held pencil sharpeners. This is a small, but necessary tool for students to be able to do their assignments at home. The pencil sharpeners will be added to the backpacks and distributed to all students during a drive back to school event scheduled prior to the start of school because all students besides pre- K, K, and special populations will be distance learning until at least December.
