Dear Isaacs Family

Brrrrr, it is cold outside, but inside there is excitement happening! The teachers are working hard to take advantage of this time of year! Many children blossom the second semester with both, physical and academic growth spurts occurring.


Please work hard to get your child to school on time! We have limited time with them everyday and we make use of every second. A couple of minutes each day sure add up over the course of a semester.


We hope to see you all on January 28th at our Multicultural Night. It will be a crowded night with activities throughout the building. You won't want to miss it!


Sincerely,

Kris Benson, Principal

COLD WEATHER AND CARPOOL

Standing outside is TOUGH in the freezing cold weather, and as the cold temperatures approach please be aware that when there are no more cars in the carpool line we come inside to get warm.


So, if you are late please bring your child to the front office to drop them off or pick them up.
