Every Friday is "School Spirit" days - your child can wear a School 5 t-shirt/sweatshirt.  Watch for flyers from the PTA who will be selling shirts again this year.

Please be reminded that you should send your child's Physical as soon as possible.  Also if your child is sick with a fever, they must be "fever free" without medicine for 24 hours before returning to school.  Also, always send a "absence note" with your child/children when they return to school.

Please let the office know if you have moved or changed your telephone number.  It is very important that we have correct/updated information for your child's safety.
