Dear Families,


Jim Woytek


Counselor's Corner

Enjoy the break for quality time with your family! This is a great time to check in with your kid about their organization! Clean out that backpack! Dig out their planner, tape up their Friday folder! Also, please remind your kids about the importance of being to school on time, every minute counts! -Mrs. Kane


BREAKFAST AND BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL SUPERVISION: Breakfast is available in the commons from 7:50-8:20 am. If your child is eating breakfast, please send them straight into the commons. Playground supervision will begin at 8:15 am and will end at 3:45 pm. Please avoid dropping your child off before or picking your child up after these times unless they are here for breakfast and/or after school activities. We appreciate your compliance on this important safety issue.
