Dear Worthington Park Families,

What an exciting week at Worthington Park Elementary! We kicked off the week with Valentine's Day celebrations on Friday and Monday and ended the week with a return to snowy mornings and an amazing FUNdraiser night from our PTA on Thursday night with Hot Chicken Takeover. While we are sad to be closed this coming Monday, we are excited to welcome the kids back on Tuesday and have an action-packed week.

Have a wonderful and safe weekend! Please take a few minutes to review the information below and GO SHARKS!
