Invention Convention

On Friday, January 26, 20 of our 5th grade students participated in our extra-curricular academic activity, Invention Convention, under the leadership of Ms. Ilana Lowe. All of our participating students did an impressive job coming up with innovative inventions. Good luck to Reilly Kerko, Tyler Harway, Gabriella Gonzalez, Caleb Marchessault, Kevin Baskerville, Arie McNeil, Hailey Vicar, Chelsea Clayton, and Nicole Orlando who have been chosen to compete at the state level on April 14th in San Jose.

Donut Bully

One area in which we are particularly focusing is creating a very positive atmosphere through events like our “Donut Bully” week held earlier this fall. If you haven’t had a chance to see our video recapping our anti bullying week, please check it out.

The Main Street Way

The Main Street Way, with its character traits of being respectful, responsible, honest and caring, is the common lens through which our behavior interventions are employed. We recently asked our students to tell us what they thought The Main Street Way was; and almost without exception, they were able to name the traits. Please watch our fun video it will put a smile on your face!

Computer Lab Hours Before and After School
