A Message from the Principal
This year, the FunD Run will play a vital role in enhancing the educational experience for our students. The funds raised during this event will be allocated to various projects and initiatives, with each grade having the opportunity to choose what they would like to support. We believe that this approach empowers our students to have a voice in shaping their educational environment and encourages them to take ownership of their learning journey.
The possibilities are endless, but some ideas that have been suggested include:
- Classroom games to make learning more engaging and interactive.
- Book subscriptions to provide students with access to a diverse range of reading materials.
- Innovative field trips that enrich their understanding of the world around them.
- Expanding our book club offerings to foster a love for reading.
- Maker space supplies to encourage creativity and hands-on learning.
Our FunD Run theme this year is "Show Your Husky PRIDE and Run as a Pack." This theme symbolizes unity, teamwork, and the strength of our school community. Throughout the event, students will participate in various team-building activities to remind them that we are not just individuals; we are one school, one team, one family.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you in advance for your generous support. Your donations will directly impact the student-led projects that will enhance the overall educational experience for our children. Your contributions are not just financial; they are a vote of confidence in our shared commitment to nurturing the next generation of confident, compassionate, and engaged individuals.
Stay tuned for more information about the FunD Run, including dates and logistics. We encourage you to get involved and help us make this event a success for our students. Together, we can achieve great things!
Thank you for being an essential part of our school community and for your continued support.

Parking Lot Etiquette
Parking lot etiquette at an elementary school is essential for ensuring the safety and well-being of all children and their families. Remember that children are always observing adult behavior, so setting a positive example is crucial. Here are some reminders for proper parking lot etiquette:
- Follow Posted Signs and Rules: Obey all traffic signs and follow the posted rules within the school parking lot. These rules are designed to keep everyone safe.
- Drop-Off and Pick-Up Zones: Use designated drop-off and pick-up zones. Avoid stopping or parking in non-designated areas, such as fire lanes or handicapped spaces.
- Be Patient and Courteous: Expect some congestion during drop-off and pick-up times, and be patient. Impatient or aggressive behavior sets a poor example for children.
- Pull All the Way Forward: Pull your vehicle all the way forward in the drop-off or pick-up line. This helps maximize the use of space and prevents traffic jams.
- Stay in Your Vehicle: Remain in your vehicle when dropping off or picking up your child. If you need to get out, park in a designated parking space.
- Avoid Double Parking: Do not double park or block other vehicles. This can create confusion and safety hazards.
- Respect Crosswalks: Always stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, and use them when crossing the parking lot.
- Watch for Crossing Guards: Respect the authority and directions of crossing guards. They are there to ensure the safety of children.
- Teach by Example: Remember that children are watching you. Demonstrate good behavior, patience, and courtesy. Use this as an opportunity to teach them about road safety.
- Plan Ahead: Arrive a few minutes early to allow extra time for drop-off or pick-up, reducing stress and rush.
- Carpool When Possible: Consider carpooling with other parents to reduce the number of vehicles in the parking lot.
- Report Unsafe Behavior: If you witness unsafe or disrespectful behavior in the parking lot, report it to the school administration or local authorities if necessary.
- Keep Calm and Stay Positive: Remember that drop-off and pick-up times can be hectic. Keep a positive attitude and be mindful of the example you're setting for your child.
By practicing good parking lot etiquette, you contribute to a safer and more pleasant environment for everyone at the elementary school, and you teach your child valuable lessons about responsible and considerate behavior on the road.
