~ Message from Ms. Triplett ~
We had a wonderful start to 2023! We are anticipating a few more rainy days and would like to remind all our families to be extra safe at drop-off and pick-up and follow all staff directions. The month of January is filled with fun events and lots of activities! Be sure to read the remainder of this newsletter, as it contains important information on upcoming events, free tutoring and more!
Looking to next week, our 3rd - 5th grade Spelling Bee tryout will be on Wednesday during lunch. Students interested in participating should go to the MPR after they finish eating their lunch.

Minimizing Classroom Interruptions!
In order to minimize classroom interruptions, we have implemented procedures with forgotten items. We are receiving a large amount of deliveries for lunches, instruments, water bottles, library books, clothing and backpacks. Please encourage your students to be prepared and check for their belongings before leaving your house. We appreciate your support!
Please note that lunches for grades 1-5 that are delivered to the school will be placed on the table outside of the cafeteria. Students should collect them from the table. They will not be delivered to the classroom.
Forgotten Instruments will be kept in the front office. Students can come to the front to see if their parent has dropped it off.

If you need to get a message to your student during the day, please contact the teacher directly.
