Title IX



“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”


Title IX covers:

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

Computer Lab Hours Before and After School We are fortunate to have our computer lab open before and after school so students can work on homework and use the computers to hone their math, literacy, and computer skills. A credentialed teacher, Ms. Lori Kearney, facilitates the lab. Multiple academic programs, as well as typing tutorials and programming sites are available to students in Kindergarten through 5th grades. Students are expected to work quietly while in the computer lab. Lab Hours are: Before School on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 7:45 to 8:30 and After School on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 2:50 to 3:45.
