Safety Concerns in the carline drop off

The safety of our children is the top priority. Our roads are icy! If you are in the carline drop off, or parking and walking your child to class, please remember:

1. If you are parking and walking your child to the building, please use the crosswalk at either end of the carline. Using the carline drop off area is actually the quickest and safest.

2. Please refrain from using your cell phone in the carline drop off.

3. Lastly, watch for distractions. Our goal is keep the carline moving and safely get the students to class.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Raise some dough for the library

Brrrr! Please send your child dressed for the weather.

Let us know if you are in need of any winter clothing items for your child/ren. We want them warm and safe!

Counselor Corner

Our character trait for November/December is: Empathy. We will be talking and learning about Empathy in our Counselor lessons. We encourage you to discuss this character trait at home with your children as well. Our students have been enjoying learning character traits this year and we have been having some great character related discussions in the classrooms! Keep up the good work parents and guardians!
