Clothing for Cold Weather

Oh the weather outside is frightful! At least it's getting there! This is my LEAST favorite season because I despise being cold! I guess it's the Florida girl in me that can't wait for Spring to come back! Unfortunately, we still have a long winter ahead of us which means we need to dress the part! We will not have outside recess if it is too cold, but if the wind chill is above 32 degrees, we hit the playground. Please remember to send your kids with appropriate winter clothing such as warm socks and shoes, coats, and gloves.

First Semester Perfect Attendance

A big congratulations goes out to Sara Laster and James Strader for being at school EVERY DAY during the entire first semester!!!

That is certainly not easy with appointments and illnesses, but these two pulled it off! Way to go!!!
