Tomorrow is the last day to buy a yearbook!


Incoming kindergarten students, we hope you can join us!


We hope you can join us tomorrow night in supporting our school community.


This past week we got to celebrate our incredible paraeducator team. Our school is better because of these remarkable humans, devoted to student success. Thank you for all you give to our school community.


Looking forward to this amazing performance.


What do teachers do on late start Wednesdays? They collaborate, learn, and grow together. Because we love what we do, there's even laughter. Here, K/1 teachers apply learning from the Science of Reading to look at automaticity practices around sight word instruction. Our goal is to align decodable sight words to LETRS scope and sequence for phonics instruction. We are better together and so proud to be Pathfinders!


Shout to these musical performers at our annual all district choral festival. I am so proud of the time and energy put into tonight’s performance. Thank Mr. Maggi for bringing the arts alive with this crew.


We hope you can join us!
