September was a busy month. Thank you for all your support! 

We are off to a great start. With your generosity, we raised over $5,500 in direct donations and pledges. We continue to accept donations to fund enrichment programs for our students.

Families flocked our Back to School Night to meet and hear from their children's teachers

The Makery is a huge hit. Students are firing up their imagination and creativity.

Our garden is looking great. Students are getting hands-on science learning thanks to our partner Education Outside.

Principal Katherine Rivera hosted the monthly Principal Coffee, ELAC, and Site Council Meetings.

Dance classes for Grades 2 and 3 started earlier this month. Watch out for their performance in November.


October promises to be another fun-filled month for our community. Highlights include:

The John Gill Move-A-Thon is back! On October 21, (Friday) from 8:30AM to 9:30AM, students will walk or run around campus to promote fitness and raise much needed funds. 
Each student gets a personalized pledge page that can be shared with family and friends. 

There will be fun prizes for students (by grade level) and classrooms that walk the most laps and raise the most funds.

Join us for the Halloween Festival on October 28 (Friday) starting at 5:30PMThere will be carnival booths, food and drinks for the whole family. 

Art and music classes start this month. These programs are generously funded by CSMARCEF and the PTA.
