Special Thank you to Three twins Ice Cream for the yummy donation!

Parking Lot reminder

Parents, grandparents and caretakers- please please please remember to slow down, look behind you, look around you and generally be cautious in our school parking lot. A child was almost hit yesterday morning because someone backed out without looking behind them first. Everyone is in a hurry in the morning, we understand. But it only takes a few seconds to be extra cautious, and these little humans deserve to be safe walking into school. Thank you.
