A Note From Mrs. Larson

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. To all the moms and caregivers, I hope that you were spoiled on Sunday.

Thank you for spoiling our teachers this past week. We are so lucky to have such an amazing staff. My favorite thing is going into the classrooms to see the fantastic work they are doing with your children. Smiling faces and excitement in lessons make my days full of joy.

We only have four more weeks of school. There will be lots of information coming out in the next few weeks. Please make sure that you are paying attention to newsletters and Parent Square messages. We have a busy week with PTA elections Wednesday, the start of our online auction, and on Thursday, we will have our virtual Open House.

Have a great week!
