We have one (1) emergency drill per month.  FIRE,  EARTHQUAKE, OR LOCKDOWN DRILLS,  depending on the month,  are a regular part of the school so that we are prepared in the event of a disaster.  

Please don't be alarmed if your child comes home and shares that we have practiced these things.  They are to ensure the health, safety, and well being of all students and staff.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Special THANKS goes out to Pastor Arlene Nehring, Padres Unidos and all of the folks at Eden United Church of Christ for a HUGE donation of brand new toys and games,  They will be used as raffle prizes at our Health Fair, support our Student Store, and for students who needed some extra holiday cheer.

And last, but not least, THANK YOU Cherryland Community Association for coming out and cleaning up the front of the school.  You guys are amazing and we really appreciate the unending support from you.
