Please be sure to check in at the office and take a visitor's badge when you visit our school. This is a safety procedure to help all of us recognize who is in our building throughout the day. We appreciate your help with this.
Thanks to so many of our families who attended our parent-teacher conference opportunity. Please feel free to contact your child's teacher at any time throughout the school year with questions or concerns regarding your child's progress.
In an effort to improve system practices, Scottsbluff Public Schools is conducting a parent survey. The survey will be available online until October 27. We value your opinion and ask that you take the time to complete this survey. In order to complete the survey, please go to:

The Rider-less Horse
On November 10 our students will have the opportunity to participate in the Caparisoned Project. The project was developed to provide a recreation of this historical and timeless event of giving honor to our Military Soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice. The purpose of this presentation is to educate students regarding the importance of American military history. Students will participate in a 30 minute presentation.
On November 14, our 3rd - 5th grade students will walk to the Midwest Theater to view the performance of Aladdin. This performance will be with the Missoula Children's Theatre.

Thirty to fifty local children will be able to participate in the performance. Auditions will be held on Monday, November 10.
