Snow Pants for everyone!!
Yep, it is that time, every child (not just the K-3 students) need to have snow pants at school in order to attend recess. We go out to recess every day that it is warmer than -10 degrees (including wind chill factor) so snow pants are a "must." Of course, gloves/mittens, hats, boots, and coats are needed as well. Thank you for your attention to this. Please be sure your child has all of the equipment for recess when they leave your house in the mornings.
If you happen to have an extra pair of snow pants from last year that your kids have outgrown, please send them to school and we will take care of "handing them down."
TURKEY BINGO IS COMING THIS FRIDAY AT 6PM
HUGE "THANK YOU" to the Kasilof Mercantile/Rocky's Cafe
Thank you to the VFW Ladies Auxiliary!
Health tip from Mrs. Abel
“At birth, babies already show preference for their native language (they have already started to develop phonological awareness, or recognition of sounds). The more language a child hears, the better they are able to speak it! To speak a second language with minimal accent, research suggests a child should be exposed to phonemes (sounds) of the second language before puberty.”
