Angel Gifts

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Time to give back to help those in need. Each teacher will be sending home information about their Angel that they adopted for the holiday season. Please check out the specifics on the attachment provided by your child's teacher. All gifts will need to be returned unwrapped and labeled with the Angel number to school no later than November 22nd. Please note that this is before Thanksgiving this year. Since we will be at Pine Cove on that date, 5th grade is expected to have gifts in by Tuesday, November 19th.

It's Fall Y'all!

Finally! Our temperatures are dropping, but we still go out for recess unless it is near freezing. Please help your child remember to bring a jacket to school. Also, please make sure their name is somewhere in their jacket.
