Important about Christmas Program
Our Christmas Program, Angels Aware, will be held on December 19, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. All of our children are portraying angels. To help with this image I ask that each student wear a garland halo. We are asking the parents to supply these halos. A simple piece of Christmas garland in your choice of color will do. Simply fit to your child’s head and tape the ends together. I ask that you send it to school in a plastic bag with your child’s name and homeroom on it no later than Friday, December 13th.
All students in Pre-School through grade 7 must wear dress clothing for the Christmas program. Please no jeans and no gym shoes. Thank you very much for your help.
A hard copy of the form was sent home or can be printed here
Important! There will be no after care on Friday, December 13th due to the Faculty Christmas gathering.

What about the weather?
Typically, you would get notified about students not coming to school through several different forms of communication- email, text message and phone call. While we try to give as much notice as possible if we think the school will be closed, it can come as late as one hour before school starts. ***Just because students do not report to school, doesn't mean they don't have work to do! Per an earlier newsletter, we have introduced "Alternative Learning Days". Students will have work either posted online or sent in an email regarding what work needs to be done. This link will take you back to beginning of the school year about "Alternative Learning Days"
