A Few Reminders

*Please remember to label your child's jacket. Since it is still cool for recess most days, jackets are often needed. To prevent misplaced items, please make sure a label is easy to spot. All Lost and Found items are donated at the end of each month.
*Check out the online teacher wish lists at www.teacherlists.com to see how you can support teachers and students at SLE.
