Each month students visit the W.O.W. Room for thirty minutes of W.O.W. Time with our school counselor, Ms. Sinclair. W.O.W. stands for Working on Wellness.
Students learn life-long skills to cultivate their emotional wellness and academic growth. Monthly topics include friendship-making skills, positive self-image, emotional regulation, calm-down strategies, study skills, and many more.
Our 4th and 5th grade broadcast crew delivers the morning announcements from our own broadcast studio.
Green screen technology allows us to embed photos and backgrounds.
Prerecorded segments are interwoven with live segments to share birthdays, awards, as well as keep our students up to date on projects and field trips.
Each morning and afternoon when you bring your students to school, you will be greeted by our 4th and 5th grade Safety Patrol students in bright orange vests.
Safety Patrol is designed to provide our students with a chance to serve in leadership positions. Members learn to treat each person with courtesy and respect. Safety Patrol's top priority is helping each student arrive and dismiss safely.
The students who participate arrive each morning at 7:25 ready to start the day. Besides the curb patrol position, students man inside stations at key locations. After school, Safety Patrol assists with afternoon dismissal for our bus riders and car riders until 3:45.

Grade level music performances happen throughout the year for PTA meetings and there are also special community performances.
UIL provides extracurricular academic contests. Between the participating elementary schools, 200+ students are typically involved. After the results are received, parents of participants are invited to an awards ceremony held in our cafeteria.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, and the Challenge has replaced our traditional science fair. The purpose of this change is to shift the focus back to the scientific process (hypothesize, test, evaluate data, and control variables, etc.) and to allow collaborative teams to apply the process as they plan, create, and build together.
Arts Showcase (May)
A wonderful evening of Art and Music as student artwork is showcased throughout the building along with special student musical performances.
Field Day (May)
Put on your sun screen, grab your water bottle, and head on out for a fabulous day of active games as students, teachers, staff and parents join in for a fun filled time.
