PrinciPAW's Post

Welcome back to the new year! It will be a year filled with learning and fun! Please join us for Leadership Day, January 14, 2015 at 8:15 AM. Our student leaders will guide you through a typical day at Shreve Island. Come learn how our teachers incorporate the Leader in Me into their daily routines to help shape students' leadership skills.


I also ask that you help spread the word about our 2016-2017 Kindergarten and Out-of-District Open House which will be the evening of January 14th.


Parents please take a moment now to write your child’s name inside their jackets and coats. We are running out of room for lost and unlabeled jackets and coats. For those that are not labeled by the end of the week, we will be glad to label them for you with a small fabric label on the inside of the jacket/coat. Thanks!
