Helena Family Newsletter
Happy New Year! We hope everyone enjoyed time home with their families over break!
January brings colder temperatures, please make sure your students are dressing for warmth! We will go outside for recess as much as possible. With recesses being before noon, the weather is cool even on the warmer days. Please reach out if your child is in need of a winter coat, we have been gifted with several that need good homes! Gloves and hats can be kept in backpacks for an "as needed" basis.
Please remember that if you plan to volunteer or go on field trips, you must complete a background check. There will be several opportunities for joining us on field trips in the next few months, so don't wait to get them completed! The background checks are good for several years. For more information on how to get a background check, please visit the Savannah website: https://www.savannahr3.com/page/volunteer-information.
