Information should have come home about the Veterans Day program on Friday. (Please see picture of note.)
Students are welcome to invite any special veterans from their lives to attend the program with them. Photography by James is donating their time and efforts to take a special picture of each child with their veteran. Due to this, we welcome veterans to the school at 2pm.

If anyone plans to attend, please fill out the bottom of the note coming home and return it to school so that we can communicate this to the teachers. We will also need this info to announce each veteran in attendance during the program AND for sign-in purposes.

If your veteran is unable to attend, you can email pictures to include in a slideshow. If you emailed Amanda a pic last year, you can send a message to Amanda or email her at the address below.

Please reach out to Amanda Cypher with any questions.

School Store Fundraiser


Today all our College Square Students went home with a large SchoolStore Envelope in their book bags.  This is amazing fundraiser and very easy for our school to raise a large amount of money.  Last year we raised $9600 in Caring for Classroom Teacher Gift Cards and $2200 in Cash Rebates to help fund Field trips and purchase Supplies for our school with.

All you have to do is go to to sign up to participate and then return the filled out envelope back to your student’s teacher.  Every student who returns their envelope completed will receive a participation prize, a plush book bag buddy.  Every child who returns their complete envelope by Friday, September 20th will be entered in to a classroom and school (College Square) wide drawing.  The classroom prize is a plush arm buddy and the school wide drawing is a talking dancing Emoji Robot.

SchoolStore works like E-Bates.  Once on the School Store’s website click on the merchants tab and then choose the online store you wish to shop on.  Our school will get a portion of what was spent.

School Store also offers Teacher Gift Cards called Caring for Classrooms.
