Run the Plank has been canceled for this June.  Unfortunately, there are too many unknowns at this time which forces the cancellation.  We need to be respectful of both our participants and sponsors.  At this time, we look forward to Run-the-Plank 2021 which is scheduled for June 26, 2021!  Be safe friends!


Deadline for orders to count for 20-21: March 31st!

No orders until school resumes!
You may still order through Scrip Now for e-gift cards or add balances to your re-loadable cards!

To sign up for Scrip, go to and use the enrollment code C222F266778L.

Washington DC - 8th Grade Trip Guide

Thank you!

LIBRARY AND ACCELERATED READER INFO:  Parents, as the kids have this time away from traditional school, let's work together to make sure they spend time reading.  Daily reading time will be a really foundational way to provide some structure in this new scenario for learning.  Hopefully your kids have brought home books from our library or possible the classroom to read.  Beyond that, please consider the following:

  • Download Epic!, a digital library of over 35,000 books.
  • Visit Goodreads, a site that lets kids freely search a database of books, annotations, and reviews.  They can generate reading lists and share suggestions with other readers.
  • Read to your own kids!  Kids of all ages love this.  To step up your game a bit, you could download Novel Effects, an app that brings your books to life by providing music, sound effects, and character voices at just the right moment, following the sound of your voice.
  • Hopefully all this reading will help kids keep their Accelerated Reader goals in mind.  Unfortunately, there is no testing from home.  But make sure to keep a list of what is read to catch up when school resumes.  To compensate for the time lost in the program, we will reduce AR award levels by five points across the board.
  • And finally, the book fair:  A few of you are still waiting for some paid orders that have not yet come in.  I will keep tabs on these and notify you when they do!


A big THANK YOU to everyone who submitted a Box Tops sheet for our recent contest. We were able to raise $403.60! This will go towards our awesome Accelerated Reader program. Keep saving those few paper Box Tops that remain.

As most of you know, Box Tops has gone digital. With the change to the program comes a change to our contests. The paper sheets will still continue until we no longer have any paper Box Tops to send in. The last expiration dates we've seen have been through 2023. 

With the change to digital, we can no longer track Box Tops by class. Our plan is to set a digital goal for the entire school. If we reach that goal, the WHOLE SCHOOL would receive a jeans/comfy cozy day. 

Please see the attached letter from Box Tops explaining how to scan your receipt digitally.  Hopefully everyone will download the app and start saving!

If you have any questions, please contact Katie Tobey at

Thank you for your support!

Mrs. Tobey, Mrs. Washburn, and Mrs. Dawson
