The Puppet Project

We are so excited to announce a new and free afterschool program for all of our students in first through sixth grade: The Puppet Project. Students will have the opportunity to strengthen endless skills, including creativity, communication, and leadership.

Starting Wednesday, February 14 right after school, we will be meeting for 12 weeks to play theatre games, create a script story, make different kinds of puppets, and have a performance. Students can either perform, help with stage production, or both! Older students will also be in a mentor role. Families are welcome to donate cardboard, fabric, yarn, glue sticks, etc. for puppets and stage design.

Lost and Found

Please remind your child to check the lost and found. We are noticing a lot of items building up, including lunch boxes and outer wear.
