Bike to School
Friday's are now officially "Ride Your Bike to School Day"! Join friends starting at 7:55 AM, meeting at Seven Suns Coffee, or you can join in along the way. Pick up a schedule at the office. Don't forget...helmets are required. See you there!
As we near the end of the 2012-2013 school year, we would like to remind students to turn in all library books, close-out cafeteria accounts, turn in all text books, and claim items from the lost and found. Any lost or damaged library or text books, and any amount owed to the cafeteria must be paid for in order to receive a final report card. For our 8th grade students, these requirements must be met in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.
We thank everyone for their extra efforts and continued support of our students and faculty at Sisson Elementary. Get ready to enjoy a relaxing summer break!
