We will be continuing with Pro-Prints for the 2016-2017 for our official school uniform.  You can order online here:  If you would like your cadet to try on the uniforms before purchasing, we now have sizing runs available at 29th St.  You can come try on clothing during between 9am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm Monday – Friday or by scheduling an appointment with Commandant Barker.  Sizing runs will also be available during registration on Monday, July 25, and Tuesday, July 26, as well as throughout the year.

In September, we will begin the bidding process for uniform providers to be able to give you the best service, options, and pricing, and I will continue to keep you updated.

Happy Summer, Everyone!

Snow Make up Day

by Julieanne Reed on February 8, 2016

Posted in: Kindergarten

Remember! We do have school on the 12th (this Friday) for a snow make up day! We do not have school on Monday, the 15th or the 22nd unless needed for another make up day


I sent home two new Scholastic book order lists with your child today. Did you know I earn free books with every purchase you make for your child? Last book order, I got 3 new books ($10 in free books) because one child ordered so many books!  Thank you so much for helping out with my free books Kevin!

We have one more month of the Book It! program and then we will go back to the regular reading logs. Keep reading and keep working on the sight words 🙂

Is anyone else dreaming of warm places? I am wishing I was back in Grand Turk of Puerto Rice right now ( even if it means having a giant lizard put on my shoulder by a stranger on the street!! At least the white on the ground is sand not snow/ice!! Be safe today and tomorrow.


Ms. Reed

Our Valentine’s day party is coming up soon! We have all the supplies we need, except for the googley eyes for our craft. I am very excited for this party and I know the kids are too!

Our party is on the 12th at 1:10 pm (after specials). Remember!!! We were not supposed to have school on the 12th but we are using it as a snow make-up day. School is in session on that day.

I will also be doing assessments and report cards soon. Please make sure you are practicing sight words and counting up to 100. The kids are doing great with their work so far this year. We have had a rough couple of weeks in the classroom as far as behavior goes. I will be making phone calls and sending e-mails/notes home with your child about behaviors in the classroom. They need to be prepared for first grade with their academics AND their behaviors.


-Ms. Reed


I apologize for the inconvenience; however, I need to cancel this evening’s Parent Group meeting due to illness.  We will meet at our normal time in February.

Thank you for understanding!
