    • We want YOU involved! If you haven't noticed already, many of our roadrunners have been featured on the weekly news showing their love of dance and many talented moves. We'd love to have your family on the news! Do you have favorite dances? Traditions around dance in your family? Just like to bust a move? If so, please email your video to Mrs. Etheridge ( and pay attention for your debut!

    • Please remember that ALL VISITORS must check in at the front desk at all times when entering our building. While we do allow parents in classrooms for special events (such as mystery readers, volunteers for an activity or event, etc), you must have a yellow visitor badge that lets all staff know you are supposed to be in the building and allowed to be down the hallways during the school day. Thanks for helping us keep all students safe and following procedures!
