Notes To The Fabulous Folks

  • On Thursday, December 17th, First Grade will celebrate the season with a Polar Express themed party. We will begin our morning with donut holes and hot chocolate, followed by a read aloud of The Polar Express, a viewing of the movie, The Polar Express, and various Polar Express themed activities. In keeping with the theme, the children may come to school in their pajamas. Please be sure that children wear their regular school shoes, as they will be going to recess and P.E. on that day.
