Apex FunRun

We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating again in the Apex Fun Run this year as our major fundraiser! The Apex program will be with our students from September 21st to October 2nd teaching leadership and fitness as we raise pledges to help our school. Please look in your child’s folder and for e-mails that will be sent to you from your teachers as the fun run approaches!

Birthday Celebrations

Due to the increasing amount of classroom allergies, we now have a school-wide policy of no edible birthday treats in the classroom. Some alternative suggestions are pencils, erasers, trinkets, etc. Parents may provide a birthday treat at the end of the day. Birthday invitations may be given to the entire class, all the girls, or all the boys in a class. Invitations should not be handed out during school hours. ​More information to come from Mrs. Wilder. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility with this matter.
