Notes from Patricia & Patty


Kinder Round Up is just around the corner on 4/11/2019. Teachers, if you have a student to enroll for KG please see me asap to get the paperwork completed so your evening is a little less stressful ....


Grade Books open for PR4A on Friday March 29, 2019. Please have grades in by 5:00 p.m. Friday April 5, 2019.


April 12, 2019 is the end of our 5th 6 Weeks, EOY here we come!

Coming next year...birthday book cart!

Next year, every Wolf, big or small, will get to chose a book from the brand new birthday cart! Teachers can choose one for their classroom library. Students will get to choose one for their very own reading library at home.


If you have any birthday book recommendations, please let me know, I'll be ordering ALL THE BOOKS this month so it will be stocked and READY when we come back in August!

Don't be alarmed...

We had several (several!) accidental alarm notifications over spring break. While I commend you for working when you didn't need too, :) we wanted to show you a quick reminder of how to get into the school during off times. Our ever so talented Counselor Bee made this video for your viewing pleasure.


Please watch!
