Tis the Season
Temperatures are starting to drop below freezing. We go outside (weather permitting, to 10 degrees below zero) for recess every day. Please, please, please start sending your student(s) to school with appropriate outerwear. This means:
- warm coat
- winter hat
- mittens or gloves
- snow pants
It is always a good idea to mark your child’s name on all items. You would be surprised how many pairs of black snow pants we get!
