Mr. Russell


A hard copy flyer about the picnic went home with students earlier this week. If the weather does not look promising for lunch next Thursday, we will need to cancel the picnic due to limited space in the school building. We will make this decision on Wednesday evening, May 24. For all the picnic details, click here.
