A Note from the Principal

This week we had a special treat with our local fire departments here from Tustin and Leroy. They educated our students on fire prevention and what to do in case they were ever in a fire. We appreciate our firemen and women and thank them for all they do for our communities!

Parent Teacher Conferences are just around the corner. If you have not confirmed your appointment, please do this as soon as possible. If you have not received anything, please contact your child’s teacher or the office to get an appointment. All conferences are scheduled for 15-minute time slots on October 24th & 25th.

Every day we encourage our students to be “BUCKS.” Being a “Buck” means being Brave, being Understanding, being Committed, and being Kind. Please take a few moments to ask your child about this and encourage them to strive to be a “BUCK each and every day! Have a wonderful weekend with your families!


Congratulations to the following students who were recognized with a “Be A Buck” postcard this week!:
