It's that time of year, roller skating in PE! Permission slips went home in your child's Thursday folder today. These are due by February, 24th! (there is a misprint on the form) Don't forget to "check" if your child needs to wear a helmet or not, and sign, date, and return the form to school, so your child can join in on the fun!

Thank you to our wonderful PTA for providing this program.
