Crew's News - Mrs. Copeland's Class

March 13, 2015

Attention Parents:

Please remember the door at the end of the K-1 hallway is not to be used as an entrance. If you exit through that door, please make sure it closes securely and does not remain open to allow access to unregistered visitors.

Attention CHALLENGER Parents,

Challenger will operate as normal on April 6th. We are aware that the flyer sent from the district did not include that day. We just want to be sure you are expecting a 5 day draft the week we are on Spring Break. This allows those who process the draft to enjoy their entire break. This means you will not have a draft taken from your accounts April 6-10.
