Happy Friday Fun Night Families!

The school was abuzz with excitement for tonight's Friday Fun Night, it's the first one in three years! A big thanks to Ms. Watts and Ms. Dorsey for putting it together!


Parent/Teacher Conferences - THANK YOU to all of you for coming to parent/teacher conferences, it was great to see so many of you! If you were unable to attend, please reach out to your child(ren)'s teacher to reschedule


Rain Gear - With "atmospheric rivers' becoming the norm, please send your child with as much rain gear as possible. Kids LOVE to play in the water, and they get quite chilled in the school after getting soaked at morning recess. We have extra rain gear at school for those who need to borrow some.


Sleep - I never realized how much sleep kids need until I had my own children! As many of you know, lack of sleep and behaviors in kids go hand in hand. I've noticed more and more students coming to school tired, which makes school more difficult. The recommended amount of sleep for kids is 3-5-year-olds: 10-13 hours/night; 6-12 years old: 9-12 hours/night! If you need more information, read this article.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Library News

Thank you, families, for helping us have another successful Scholastic Book Fair! We are especially thankful for the volunteers who were able to help us during our library classes. During those classes we were able to help each child select a book to add to their home library. The students' love of reading and the power of choice are part of what makes the book fair a favorite library event. We look forward to hosting the next one in February. Happy reading!

Conference Food Gratitude

From fruit, to muffins, to sliders, to sandwiches, to strata, to enchiladas, to cookies - a BIG thank you to the parents who brought in food for our teachers during Parent-Teacher Conferences! All of the food was very much appreciated!
