Establishing our Routines!

We had another successful week this past week and our students are beginning to establish their routines and our schedules are falling into place with each passing day. It is exciting to see our students so happy to be back in school and engaging in their learning! Thank you for your continued support for our teachers and staff!

Each week, new information and the latest updates will always be at the top of The Paw Print. Other reminders and links that continue to be helpful will remain at the bottom half of our newsletter.

School Picture Day is coming up on September 23rd. More information will be coming home with your child soon.

Go Bears!
