*Arrival Procedures*

If you need to exit your vehicle for any reason during morning arrival, please park alongside the gym building. This helps keep the line moving. Please also be sure to pull all the way up to the end of the sidewalk, this allows more children to exit at a time. Thank you!

Look for the yellow office envelope today!

The office is still missing required back-to-school paperwork for some students. Please look for a pink note of things we may be missing from you and return in your envelope as soon as possible.

There is also information on the Daddy Daughter dance and picture day included this week.

Virtue of the Week:

Our Virtue of the week is Affability. Affability means being easy to approach and easy to talk to, friendly.
