Weekly Update - September 1, 2023

It was great to see so many families at our Ice Cream Social last night. It was a fabulous turnout. Parents were able to connect and socialize while children enjoyed ice cream, popsicles, playing with friends and seeing their teachers.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or myself at the numbers listed below.
