JANUARY NEWS

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Welcome 2017 ! On behalf of everyone at The Guthrie School, we would once again like to thank you for your support. Our school continues to grow, and there is a feeling of continuing progress being made. We are excited to see everyone back in the new year, and are looking forward to welcoming the new families who have joined our community.

The contributions made by all the staff are quite outstanding, and it is their commitment that ensures that the months ahead will be months of further success and achievement.

A ROUND OF APPLAUSE!

On behalf of the entire Faculty and Staff, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Secret Elves who gave their time and energy to make the holiday parties a huge success! Our elves decorated classrooms, brought tasty treats, and planned fun games and activities for the children to enjoy. We know not everyone can be here for these special days, so we are grateful to the photographers who took countless numbers of pictures to be shared in our beautiful annual yearbook! It was a wonderful way to start the HOLIDAY SEASON!

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES

Please be sure to put Tuesday, January 10th on your calendar. Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held all day, and teachers will be giving parents their child's Re-Enrollment Packet at the conference.


THERE ARE NO CLASSES - Extend is in session!

COATS AND MITTENS!

Be advised - as long as the temperature with wind chill is 35 degrees, classes will be going outside to enjoy recess. Be sure to send along coats, hats, mittens, etc. to keep your child warm and snuggly! Please remember to label all of your child's apparel. We will be following PISD's cold weather protocol.
