Only three more weeks until we reach winter break. We do not have a lot of updates for this week! Just please be sure to read the following:
1. Send your student with appropriate gear for the weather. Students will continue to go outside throughout the winter. It is critical they wear the appropriate clothing and gear to do so. If your student is in need of winter gear, please reach out to us.
2. Please send your student to school each day with a water bottle. We are running low on cups and also want to be more eco conscious. Please make sure water bottles are labeled with student's first and last name.
Thank you for your help and support!
