Mark your Calendar:

November 21-23 - Thanksgiving Vacation No School in Session.

December 24- January 1 - No School Holiday Break



Students should be wearing cold weather jackets and bringing hats and mittens. The chill is real and they get cold outside when they are out there for 20 minutes. Please get these out and have your child wearing them daily.

Last Friday was our 1st PAWS Live for this school year. This is an all school assembly we hold to recognize kids doing good things. This month we also talked about how everyone makes mistakes and that it is important to learn from them. Some mistakes still have consequences with them. Talk to your child about a mistake they made and what they learned from it. Tell them a time you made a mistake and what you learned from it.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you have about your child or school.
