Thank You to Mrs. Hayes

Mrs. Wendy Hayes is one of our 5 kindergarten teachers, and this week, she helped us all out by bringing in many caterpillars as well as milkweed. We have watched the form their chrysalis, seeing them wiggle, and now are waiting for our monarchs to come out.

Divine Savior Holds Orientation Meeting

Mrs. Vicki Krug with her assistant Mrs. April Clark, held their parent orientation meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 3rd. They had great attendance, went over the handbook, rules, and had parents busy signing up for lots of upcoming events. Their first day begins Tuesday, Sept. 8th.
