  • learn about our Choice of School process and timeline
  • see our available programs at all levels, including magnet opportunities 
  • meet the students and staff of their campuses

We look forward to seeing you there. 


Our annual Turkey Trot is an exciting event for all of our students! Students and their family will participate in competing to gather the most laps around the school. 

Parent and family members, plan to attend and help your child compete for the most laps around our school. This fun run will help to alleviate any Thanksgiving over indulgence that the following week may bring. Primary grades (Pre-K, Kinder, 1st and 2nd grade) will begin at 8:45 a.m. Upper grades (3rd, 4th, 5th) will begin at 9:45 a.m.

****Please turn in Volunteer Paperwork, as early in the year as possible,  if you would like to participate in the Turkey Trot or Field Day.****
