Toys @ School

Please make sure your student is NOT bringing toys to school. Lately, with so much inside recess, K2 has had an abundant of small toys brought to school. Lego men, small figurines, plastic teeth, trading cards and even crazy loom rubber band bracelets are a major distraction.


I am not sure parents always know when their child is taking toys to school, but I would appreciate it if you could talk to them about it! Thanks!

Mark your calendars> Career Day March 4th, Open House March 6th!

Update - Red Reading Folder

I apoligize that Red Reading Folders were not sent home this week. As of Thursday afternoon, I am still missing 8 student's folders. It is pretty much impossible for me to return book to our literacy library and check out new books when I am missing this many books. Reading at home is such a huge factor in the success of our students. Please help by returning folders every FRIDAY!
