Coming Home Today
Not a thing!
We haven't been here long enough to gather anything TO send home!
Think Warm Thoughts!
Warwick's power was restored at some point over night. I know there are still wide-spread power outages all throughout our district. We all hope to be back to school soon!
We obvioulsy had to postpone our Support Staff breakfast which was scheduled for today. We're also working to reschedule the NOVA presentation that was supposed to be this evening at Cold Spring Elementary.
I hope you are all staying safe and warm, and trying to enjoy this time - somehow.
Power Paw Pride!
