A Note From Our Principal

Dear Families,

We are over halfway through a very dreary month, and I dream of the sun and warm weather often. With the mention of weather, please make sure your student is prepared to go outside

every day. Also, please remind your student that toys, trinkets and Pokémon cards are not allowed at school. This helps eliminate issues that could take place on the playground and in our classrooms. It may even be beneficial to check your student’s bag for these items. I appreciate your support.
