Dear Isaacs Family,


It is February, the month of love! I have to tell you, I LOVE the staff of the Isaacs Early Childhood School. I ended up having a horrible virus during the Multicultural Night and was home stuck in bed. The staff at Isaacs carried on and I heard we had a packed house! Thanks to all of those who came and supported your children.


We will also have some special guests at Isaacs this month to present to us on tools and tool safety. Carpenters from the Home Depot will come visit and may even build us something new for our school!


Don't forget that your children do NOT have school on February 15th!


Sincerely,

Kris Benson, Principal

COLD WEATHER AND CARPOOL

Standing outside is TOUGH in the freezing cold weather, and as the cold temperatures approach please be aware that when there are no more cars in the carpool line we come inside to get warm.


So, if you are late please bring your child to the front office to drop them off or pick them up.
