JCPRD @ Grand Star
Out of School Time Newsletter - February 2016
Winter or Spring?
This weather has sure been unpredictable in 2016! We are still trying to get outside, even for just a few minutes, every day that it's possible. I know I have been dressing in 2-5 layers and with different coats. Thank you for helping your child have enough options to stay warm or cool! :)
Don't forget to follow @JCPRDGardnerOST on Twitter for up-to-date emergency closing procedures as well as pictures of your kids in action in our Out of School TIme program!
