First, I thank you again for your patience and awareness during dismissal! Please know that we purposefully are not moving cars as we have buses and daycares leave our drive first. This is so that cars do not start turning and navigating as buses safely depart. Again, as drivers navigate the turns, please be very cautious. The safety of our children and families is a priority!
Many thanks to our wonderful families and PTO for the delicious lunch on Thursday!!! Yes, I actually stopped to eat and so enjoyed the many delicious foods! This act of great kindness is truly appreciated by me and our Midway staff/faculty. THANK YOU!!!
What busy and exciting times we are having!! This week is our Box Tops for Education Week which is a win-win.
