A note from our principal

Dear Families,

Welcome back! We are officially in the second half of the year. It's a good time to review some information. Please make sure your child has snow gear every day. We go out to play for short periods of time unless it feels like 0 degrees. We have extra gear if your child needs it.

Attendance is also very important. Please have your child to school by 7:30 each morning.

Happy new year and happy new semester.

Jane Trimper

I made myself a snowball
As perfect as could be.
I thought I'd keep it as a pet
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first it wet the bed.

By Shel Silverstein
