We are excited to see the many different ways our BEARS will come to school on Wednesday, as we celebrate "International Walk to School Day." Thank you to our class Room Reps and parent volunteers for working with your child's classroom to create their "International Walk to School" banners that will be proudly displayed outside of school bright and early on Wednesday, to welcome our BEARS.


Mrs. Halpin and I want to walk to school with YOU on Wednesday! We will meet at the corner of Plainfield and Coronado on Wednesday, October 2nd, at 7:30AM to walk with our BEARS to school. See you there!
