School-Based Management Team (SBMT): SBMT is the group that makes school-wide decisions around the School Improvement Grant Plan - instructional, budgetary, social-emotional, to improve student achievement. We meet the second Thursday of the month, unless there is a conflict (school break, testing, etc.).
KEEP 'EM COMIN'~~~~ We collect BOXTOPS for Education labels. Simply clip out and send with your child in a baggie or envelope. The money is used to fund classroom activities, such as field trips.
