Verse of the Day: Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."  John 6:35

Grade Cards: Grade cards are being sent home today.  After reviewing grade cards, please sign and return to the office within a week.  

Coronavirus: In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, at this time, we are not planning to cancel school.  Administration will be staying on top of things and keep families and teachers updated.  In the meantime, we are encouraging students and staff to wash hands often.  Hands should be washed after sneezing or coughing, after using the restroom, and before eating any snacks or meals.  We visited with students this morning during Opening and instructed on proper hand washing techniques.  Staff will be sanitizing desks and surfaces at the end of the school day every day.  Lastly, if you or a family member are sick, please stay home.  For more information on the coronavirus, you can go to the websites for the Pettis County Health Center, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, or the World Health Organization.  Here is a link for how to keep your family safe:
