Students from grade five and six are able to serve as the school safety patrols. They are AMA trained to assist the younger students to cross 117th Street. For the safety of all students, we ask everyone's cooperation in helping the patrols to do their job. This includes no jaywalking, thus crossing ONLY at the designated crosswalk with lights, no stopping/parking in front of the school, no parking in staff parking lots, and no U-turns in the roadway in front of the school.
The school has a well equipped, technology makerspace, as well as smartboards, Chromebooks, netbooks and iPads that are accessible to every classroom. Each classroom is set up with one or more computers networked to the library. Each parent will be asked to sign an Acceptable Use Form giving their children the right to use the Internet.
Throughout the year students are involved in theme days. These days are fun and develop school spirit, culture and pride.
