Ever wondered about the unique and fascinating lives of our dedicated faculty and staff members? In this edition, we're shining the spotlight on Ms. Katie Townsend, and here are 5 interesting tidbits that make her stand out:

Five interesting facts about me:

  1. 🤚 Left-Handed Wonders: Ms. Townsend is part of the exclusive left-handed club, adding a touch of uniqueness to their teaching style.

  2. 🌴 Sunshine State Roots: Originally hailing from South Florida, Ms. Townsend brings a bit of that warm sunshine to our school community.

  3. 🌉 Bridge Climber Extraordinaire: Hold your breath! Ms. Townsend once conquered the heights of the Sydney Harbor Bridge in Australia. Now that's an adventurous spirit!

  4. 🐾 Pet Parenting Pro: Dog, Teddy, the wise and loyal companion of Ms. Townsend, who is an impressive 16 years old. A true testament to the power of love and care.

  5. 🥧 Pi Day Enthusiast: March 14th is not just another day for Ms. Townsend. She celebrates Pi Day annually, adding a fun and educational twist to the festivities with their students.

School Store

This school year, the School Store has experienced remarkable success. One exciting feature is the availability of $20 punch cards that can be utilized for purchasing merchandise. Considering that students are unable to carry backpacks throughout the day, $20 book bags are now offered for purchase on the PTA website, with convenient pickup options at the store.


For our students’ convenience, the School Store operates during the following hours: Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 am to 9 am.


Additionally, we are actively seeking volunteers for the store – an opportunity often regarded as the MOST FUN volunteer role at our school.

Join us in making the School Store experience even more enjoyable for everyone!
