Note about Elves

We will be entering into the holiday season very soon and the elves will begin making their yearly visits. While Santa’s little helpers are as cute as can be, they tend to cause distractions at school, and many times, they end up misplaced or lost. To help alleviate the stress elves can cause for our young students, we are asking that they not come to school over the next several weeks. Students will be allowed to bring their elves the day of their class Christmas party, but any other time, they should not be at school. Please be mindful of this as you begin making preparations for your child’s elf’s return.
