Please follow all neighborhood driving and pedestrian laws. Make sure you walk with your child when crossing the street at the crosswalk. Teach your child good safety habits. For those parents wishing to drop-off and pick-up their child by car, we ask assistance in maintaining a safe parking lot. The traffic through the parking lot will be limited to the following: On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 1:50-2:00pm, the parking lot is for Kindergarten pick-up traffic only. After 2:00pm, the parking lot is open to Grades 1-6 pick-up traffic. On Thursdays, from 12:20-12:30pm, the parking lot is for Kindergarten pick-up traffic only. After 12:30pm, the parking lot is open to Grades 1-6 pick-up traffic. Please be advised that parking and waiting at the curb will be prohibited as it impedes the flow of traffic. Please click on the link above to find out how you can help us keep a safe parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation.

This time of year, many families choose to take extended time away from school because of important functions or vacations.

Click on the link above to read more about the importance of attendance. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions about vacations and schoolwork. Thank you for your support!

To promote school safety, Matsumoto had added Pedestrian Walking Flags and Holders. The flags are used at school intersections to help keep children safe as they walk to school. When a student holds a Pedestrian Crosswalk Flag as they use a crosswalk, they are making surrounding cars aware of their presence and giving them the confidence to safely walk to school. Please discuss the proper use of the pedestrian walking flags and holders with your children. Thank you!

April's ABC book: In your child's classroom, we read "One" by Kathryn Otoshi is a colorful story of acceptance and tolerance and tells the tale of how just one voice can make a difference. Goals of the lesson: 1. Students know, accept and value who they are. 2. Students believe that they have the power to make a difference in their own (and other students') lives. 3. Students recognize that they have power within themselves to react/respond in bullying/bucket dipping situations.
