Successful Kindergarten Parent Day

We had a very successful Parent Day in kindergarten last week. Parents enjoyed time with their children and other family members. A variety of activities were available to our families. A big "Thank You" to Mrs. Fischer and Mrs. Perry for organizing this special event. We appreciate the helping hands of Ms. Fields, Mrs. Kohls, and Mrs. Kies during this event, making the family day possible.

Please make sure your students use the restroom before lunch. We are having a lot of students asking to leave.
