Green committe & Music Department Initiate String Recycling Program

Play a string instrument? What should you do with broken or worn out strings? Look for our new collection box for used strings in the music room. Thank you to Mrs. Dunne for keeping the box in this convenient location. The strings will be recycled through the Play Back program.

Bicycle Safety Program

Starting Monday February 4th- March 1st, all students in 3rd-5th grade will begin riding and practicing their bike safety skills. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that your child bring their own personal helmet to wear while on the bikes. This gives me a great opportunity to check out their helmet and make sure it fits properly and is in good working condition. If your child does not bring their own helmet, I will provide them with one to wear during our class. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at

Thank you,

Ms. Best
