Thank you to all the parents that have sent in snacks. The students really appreciate the extra snacks during the week.

Parents with growing children and I am sure you know that the students are having big appetites. We would like to provide each student an extra snack each week with an extra bottle of water. You may send in cereal with baggies and we will be glad to separate the items.

Please let us know if you have questions.
