The Primary Elementary School serves children in second and third grades.  The school building was originally constructed in 1954 and renovated in 1991. Today the facility offers more than 154,000 square feet dedicated to meeting the needs of young learners. 
 
Young children learn by doing. Learning is sequential and children must demonstrate readiness for new understandings based on their maturation and past experiences. Children acquire information and knowledge through interaction with people and objects. They are motivated to learn through their own need to make sense of the world around them.  
The building has a card access system and offers telephone, television and intranet access in each classroom.  Other amenities include a multi-purpose room, two cafeterias/multi-purpose room, and a gymnasium with auxiliary gym space.

  • Information   Homework Free Weekend!Homework Free Weekend  
    Superintendent Joe McFarland has said “enough of the winter blahs!” and declared February 27 to March 1, 2015 a Homework Free Weekend. Teachers will not be giving any new assignments to be completed during this time.  It is the school district’s hope that families use this opportunity to spend quality time doing something relaxing together.

    One suggestion is to attend the high school’s annual musical. Tickets for ‘Crazy for You’ can be ordered on the district web site,” McFarland said. “No matter what your family chooses, I hope you enjoy our homework free weekend.”
