Parents & Guardians:

This past week was a very busy week at school. There is always so much going on. We had a lot of buzz this week about “MOMO,” especially in the 5th grade. Administratively, we decided to call all of the 5th graders to the auditorium to put their minds at ease and provide specifics on Internet safety. Please talk to your kids about this hoax. Also, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Wishing everyone a great week.
