Our Traditions

Our learning community has firmly established Rituals, Routines, and Traditions. The traditions are embedded throughout our school year and offer rich and meaningful experiences for our young learners. Some of the traditions are designed for the entire school to enjoy like the Literary Pumpkin Festival, Wreath Auction, and Cultural Arts Events. Others are designed for specific grade levels.

First Grade--Sleepover
Second Grade--Holiday Play
Third Grade--End of the Year Play

Some of the traditons are designed for parents like 4th Grade Write Night where teachers take the opportunity to share state expectations with parents.

No matter what the event, our traditions are extremely embedded in our culture, and it takes everyone from the grade level teachers, resource team, and parent volunteers for an event to occur with this type of depth. I applaud all of those participants for offering such rich and meaningful experiences for our students. These are the times they will remember for a lifetime.
