FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
The warmer weather has certainly been wonderful these past few days! Although the snow is still not clear enough for the children to play outside, the time in the sun during arrival and dismissal has been lovely. The weather seems to be predicting more snow next week. Cross your fingers for the system to pass by without much accumulation.
On Wednesday of this past week, we registered students in the upcoming Kindergarten class. They will be our newest little cougars. If you missed this time or you know of a family who did not register, please contact Mrs. Monica Gallagher to schedule an appointment as soon as possible!
As you know, the school calendar has been amended to reflect the missed time. The Board of Education will vote on Monday to reinstate Friday, March 14th, a previously scheduled Professional Development Day, as a full day of school.
Finally, stay tuned for important information regarding the upcoming PTO Raffle and Auction. We need your help!! A special note will be sent home this week!!!
Thank you for your support and have a great weekend!
Mrs. Capes :)

Five Ways to Beat a Cold
- Wash your hands often. Most colds are transmitted through indirect physical contact.
- Drink plenty of fluids. It helps flush germs from your body.
- Get a good night’s sleep. This keeps your immune cells powered up.
- Keep at least three feet away from coughers and sneezers. This helps avoid contact with airborne droplets, which may make you sick.
- Have chicken soup. Any warm fluids can help relieve cold symptoms and act as an expectorant.
School age children need 10-12 hours of a sleep a night. Lack of sleep can cause irritable or hyper types of behavior and may make it more difficult for kids to pay attention in school. It is important to have a consistent bedtime. No matter what your child’s age, establish a bedtime routine that encourages good sleep habits. These tips can help ease kids into a good night’s sleep:
- Power down. Turn off electronics at least one hour before bedtime. If your child has a TV in their room, consider removing it. Research shows that children who have a TV in their room tend to sleep less.
- Create a calming routine. Winding down each night with the same routine signals that it is time for sleep.
- Stick to a bedtime. Alert your child a half hour and 10 minutes beforehand.
