  • Digitability

    Students in our elementary class saved money using Digitability* to purchase handmade stuffed animals. Digitability* is an innovative and comprehensive program empowering students with autism or other cognitive disabilities to learn financial literacy. Students virtually set a budget and pay bills. They also learn time and task management within their accounts. These four special students “saved” enough money to purchase a very special handmade stuffed animal made by our own Ms. B. (Consumer Science Teacher).

  • Spring Dress code

    As the warmer weather will be upon us soon, students will be permitted to wear shorts beginning April 12, 2024. Shorts will need to be solid khaki in color and follow the same rules of appropriateness that we have in place throughout the school year per our dress code. Shorts must come to at least the knee (when standing), no athletic or ripped shorts are permitted. On days when students earn the right to "free-dress", students must follow dress code rules.
