Marketing: The school board is looking for parents to visit boarding parishes at Lakeview and Howard City to invite interested people to visit our school. Anyone interested contact me.  Mrs. McCall has some backpacks ready to take on visits. 


AR 4th Quarter: Off Code for students reaching quarter goals beginning June 2 – 5.  Students in PS & K please join us due to all your efforts with letters, sounds, and reading! Keep reading this summer!


Due Tomorrow-Parent Survey: If you did not receive a survey last week, let Mrs. McCall know and she will send one home. Please return the surveys by June 3.  Next year I predict Mr. Franconi will send the same survey you filled out last year electronically. 


Reminder: Smart Tuition: If you are a returning family, Smart Tuition will roll your information into the new year.  You would just need to contact them if you are making changes to your account, such as payment method or date of payment.
