Information and News

Field Trip

We were disappointed about our field trip being cancelled due to weather, but will be rescheduling for a nicer day! We will send out information when we have a date.

The words of the week are import and export. Ask your child to use these in a sentence and look for examples of their use in everyday conversation.
