From The Desk of Principal Roberts

Dear Rattler Families,

I am wishing each of you a beautiful holiday season with love and laughter. Enjoy this special time with family and friends. I know I cannot wait to have my triplets under my roof for an extended amount of time to play games, watch movies, visit family and just be! I will see everyone on Tuesday, January 3rd, and I can't wait to hear all about their two weeks' vacation from school.

With Joy and Love,

Shelley Roberts

Class Parties and Badge Printing

In an effort to make our party days run as smoothly as possible, we need your help! If you plan on attending a holiday party or parties (December 13th - 16th), please fill out this form by 3:00 the day before. This will save us time in the front office so we can print badges ahead of time. You only need to fill this form out once by checking every box on the dates/times you plan on being at the school. PLEASE bring your ID even if we have printed your badge in advance. This will be our way of ensuring we know exactly who is in the building.

Also, we kindly ask that you do not check your child out early after the party if at all possible. Thank you for your patience in advance!

Class Parties:

12/13: Kinder (1:00 - 2:00)

12/14: Third Grade (8:45 - 10:15)

Our lost and found has taken on its own zip code! We know you have been looking all over the place for that coat you just bought or that water bottle that was more expensive than a water bottle should actually cost. I would guess to say, the school lost in found might be just the place you need to visit. All items are in the front foyer, so come take a peek! All items will be donated on Friday.
