Hey Galatia Parents please make sure you are never driving around a bus when they are parked for drop off or pick-up at either school. At the grade school do not use the road on the East side of the school where the buses park in the morning or close to the end of the day. Grade School Parents should always drop off your kids at the front south entrance of the grade school across from the community center.

Mrs. Biggerstaff’s 2nd grade class constructed toothpick and marshmallow houses. We tested them to see if they could withstand an earthquake simulation with jello. We had one group who’s house survived the earthquake! The students all did a great job and really enjoyed this science project.
