Volunteers for Skate 101
Do you remember the first time you learned to skate? Well I sure do and I think I have some scars as mementos.
PE is doing a Skate 101 class with 3rd - 5th grade. They are requesting parent volunteers to help get all the safety gear on the kiddos as quickly as possible. This will give our students the maximum amount of skate time.
If you are able to come and donate your time please sign up for a time slot. Thanks - L :O)

Arrival and Dismissal News
Our new WalMart store is now open, across the street. Thank you for your support as we all adjusted to possible changes in traffic.
Last week, we reminded our students they should continue their normal way home during dismissal. Teasley is a busy street. No child should be asked to walk across Teasley with a parent, or asked to walk across Teasley alone to meet a parent at WalMart.
Your child's safety is one of our greatest priorities.

It is for recreational reading. This means students will have to read above and beyond required their reading for school.

Forms must be returned to the school by February 24th. (Please see your child's Tuesday Folder for this information).
