DAR Essay Competition

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. In commemoration of this Great War, the Daughters of the American Revolution Writing Prompt Essay for 2017-2018 is “World War I: Remembering the War to End all Wars.” This is a great opportunity for fifth graders to share and submit their writing in a competition.  This essay competition is an at home optional assignment.  Students who wish to participate will complete all writing at home and then turn in their completed essay with a bibliography to Mrs. Thompson by Wednesday, November 15, 2017. More information will be sent home in the Monday folder.

Agenda/Monday Folders


       Students will write their assignments in their agenda.  Also, I ask that parents/guardians sign the agenda each day.

    Monday Folders will be sent home each Monday. The folder will contain assignments completed during the course of the week. Parents are asked to review the assignments with the student, sign the Monday Folder, and return the folder to school the following day. 


Power School Parent

PowerSchool’s Parent Portal gives parents and guardians information including attendance, grades, and other school information. The PowerSchool Parent Portal is a valuable tool, helping you stay informed of your student’s academic progress and attendance.
