Friday Firebird Flash

December 4, 2015

Hello Firebird families!

We are definitely feeling the holiday spirit here at Minocqua J1! I was fortunate enough to take a couple of hours of my day to help chaperone the kinder field trip to the tree farm. It was a wonderful experience. Take some time to look at the pictures in the link below. It will give a lift to your day to see the expressions of joy on our little ones' faces.


Proud to be your principal,


Brent Johnson
