Winter Parties!

Winter Parties are scheduled for December 16th from 9:30-10:30 in your child's teachers classroom. Parents are welcome to attend, but we do not have any room for siblings. December 16th is an Early Release with 12:00 noon dismissal. Students will have an opportunity to go through the lunch line for a bag lunch that will be eaten in their classrooms.

Classes resume on January 4th.

Please RSVP for class parties to help us prepare for visitors. Again, we kindly ask no siblings attend the party due to space.
