School Activities

Family Flag Assembly - Last Tuesday Morning of the Month

Families are invited to join us on the blacktop the last Tuesday of the month at 7:45 for a Family Flag Assembly.  Students line up with their class and visitors can join us for the Flag Salute and other announcements or awards.

Soaring Eagle Radio

K-5 grade students broadcast over the school's PA system from Mrs. McManigal's office each morning at 7:50am.  Each broadcast begins with a welcome by Mrs. McManigal, the Pledge of Allegiance led by a student, followed by other announcements. 

STEM Lab and Library

Students have the opportunity to explore in our iCAN LAB using Lego Robotics, Spheros, Marty the Robot, 3D printers, iPads, and Steam Builder Bins. Classes usually split their time between the Lab and the Library to allow all students in the class to have the opportunity to explore both STEM and Reading!

Every month our school focuses on one or two character traits from Coach John Wooden's Pyramid of Success.  Students who are selected by their teacher for displaying strong character are recognized at the flag ceremony on the last Tuesday of the month.
