Snow Time Shop
Today is the final day for our students to shop at the Snow Time Shop for their family and friends. This is a fun chance for the children to choose gifts for their loved ones. If you did not bring your envelope this morning, we will have the store open for 30 minutes immediately following the 2nd - 6th grade holiday program this afternoon.
Holiday Parties / Early Dismissal
We will also have a book exchange during the party. We ask that each child bring a new wrapped book appropriate for your child's age; there is a $10 price limit.
Please note that the elementary office will be closed during the entire break; all students will enter and exit through the preschool building.
Polar Express Event - Friday, December 14th
Please note that the preschool building will be closing at 5:30 Friday evening in preparation of the event. Any children that are here after 5:30 will be moved to the elementary building. Thank you for your understanding!
In addition, please use a space when you are parking; when you stop in the middle of the drive and/or do not park in a proper spot, it blocks the flow of traffic.
If you have any questions about available areas to park, please do not hesitate to ask.
